Movie Info

Long a staple of Italian theater and vocal music, Marco Filiberti makes an auspicious debut as a feature-film writer/director in this melodrama set against the decadent backdrop of the porn industry. Filiberti plays the tanned, toned, and egotistical Riki, whose name is well-known to the country's gay adult-film connoisseurs. After the death of his aristocratic father, Riki is brought back into contact with his estranged brother Federico (Urbano Barberini), who views his brother's chosen profession with a combination of disdain and curiosity. As the two reconcile their differences, Riki has to come to terms with growing up and taking responsibility, which for him includes the desire to become a father by adopting an orphan.

Critic Reviews for Adored: Diary of a Porn Star

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (11)

  • This clumsy, self-indulgent film veers from comedy to tragedy and is told in flashbacks, with treacly diary entries and unconvincing 'testimonies' from friends providing a window into the past.

  • There is little for an American audience to adore about the film's star- writer-director Marco Filiberti, a breathtakingly self-idolatrous artist who makes Roberto Benigni look like an avatar of humility.

  • Not only is Adored amateurish and mawkish even by the standards of American 'gaysploitation' cinema, it's weirdly shy about showing nudity and sex.

    May 28, 2004 | Rating: 1/4
  • A vanity project so preposterous it deserves to become an instant camp hit.

    May 28, 2004 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Judging by Adored, the Italian singer, actor and filmmaker Marco Filiberti has the healthiest ego in Europe, if not the known universe.

    May 27, 2004 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • The film's witlessness keeps any satirical potential submerged well below soap opera levels.
