  • Summary: Three of the 24 brilliant and witty short films produced by award-winning Regina Zeigler. (Quad Cinema)

  1. Three brief comedies filmed in English for a German television series. The most thoughtful is Seidelman's contribution, The Dutch Master."
  2. 50
    This package of three short films originally produced for German television is sex-themed without being especially sexy.
  3. Don't let the title fool you. The one thing they have in common is how decidedly unerotic they are.
  4. 30
    The results, to judge from the examples here, have been stuffy and disappointing, an unholy alliance between Playboy Channel prurience and PBS cultural alibis.
  5. 25
    With so many worthy movies being made in Europe, it's a crime that something as mediocre as Erotic Tales gets a release here.
  6. 20
    Their attempts at wit seem forced, and the overall point of each installment is too minor to spend nearly 30 minutes exploring.
  7. 10
    Whittled down from a series of 36 short films commissioned by a German television network between 1996 and 2000, Erotic Tales leaves you only to ponder the horror of the 33 that didn't make the cut.

    Very clever and interesting twist provided excellent comedy. Best of all was that it was not a "formula film".
