Fifty shades of black – which airs this evening at 21.23 on Italia 1 – is the second chapter of the film adaptation taken from the literary saga of Fifty Shades of Gray, written by EL James. A saga that, in spite of the opinion of critics and experts, has had enormous success with the public, so much so that it has become a real case in the publishing market that has also made many spectators go crazy in the cinema. It is therefore not surprising that the two protagonists of the film, Dakota Johnson And Jamie Dornan have become stars thanks to the interpretation of Ana and Christian.
Fifty shades of black, the texture
Directed by James Foley and released in theaters in 2017, Fifty shades of black kicks off more or less where the previous film left off, Fifty Shades of Gray. Anastasia “Ana” Steele (Dakota Johnson) has had to accept the fact that billionaire Christian Gray (Jamie Dornan) is unable to reciprocate her feelings. For the woman, therefore, the real challenge is to leave the past behind and try to forget the fiery one liason that had linked her to the billionaire with a passion for bondage. Determined to move on with her life, Ana finds a job at the publishing house headed by Jack Hyde (Eric Johnson), who seems to have a soft spot for the girl. Meanwhile Christian, realizing that he feels nostalgia for Anastasia, proposes to revise the terms of their contract, so that they can spend time together again, in the name of her passion. Jack, who feels jealous of Christian for reasons beyond Anastasia’s predilection, will look for a way to take revenge on both of them for the various confrontations they have suffered. But on the horizon there is another threat that jeopardizes Anastasia’s serenity: the girl will in fact be tormented by her ex (Bella Heathcote) by Christian, prompting her to reflect on whether it is worth staying by the side of a man with whom she cannot feel completely safe.
The rituals of the two protagonists in the sex scenes
It is certainly no mystery that the whole saga of Fifty Shades of Gray place the sex at the center of his own narrative universe. Although they are not openly erotic films – unlike books, which are instead cataloged in this genre – all the films in the saga tell the encounter / clash between two human beings who first of all want to put themselves at the service of every desire that belongs. to the sexual sphere. In this sense Anastasia is seen as a woman who is “accompanied” towards her sexual liberation by a man much more experienced, erotic and with very specific fantasies, who open the doors to a hitherto unknown world for the girl. Of course, the massive presence of sex scenes related tohardcore pushed the leading actors to seek and find a way to face them, do their job and not run the risk of feeling uncomfortable. According to what is read on the website ofInternet Movie Data Base, really, Jamie Dornan And Dakota Johnson had real rituals that they went through before having to pose in front of the camera for the more explicit scenes of Fifty shades of black: a kind of ritual / talisman to help them relax before having to shoot.
According to the website, Dakota Johnson was trying to relax her nerves before a particularly intense scene from the sexual point of view by drinking a glass of whiskey. Jamie Dornan, on the other hand, preferred to release tension by doing push-ups, training the body in order to keep his mind free of thoughts that could have been annoying when he was in front of the camera. These two rituals, which the two actors performed in an isolated and individual way, then converged in the habit of having long conversations between them in order to be able to decide together how to shoot the various sex scenes after the director had given them the directions. general to follow. In this way the two actors were able to bring the question of sex to a strictly working level, which prevented them from feeling uneasy or embarrassed. However, it should be emphasized that, regardless of the precautions taken by the actors to feel comfortable during the filming, all the sex scenes were made with the use of some special “prostheses” which had the task of covering the private parts of the actors, so that they never really come into contact with each other.
