Length: 195 minutes

Extra's: With such a lot of scenes in the main feature, extras are not as expected but there were a few here to speak of. The Behind the Scenes feature was short (about 5.5 minutes long), the standardized director profile, and some trailers beside the usual spam.

Audio/Video Quality: A Touch of Pink was presented in the usual 1.33:1 ratio full frame color as originally shot by director Patrick Handsome. The colors seemed accurate and the fleshtones well done but the lighting was more varied than I prefer in my porn. The composition of the camera shots managed to convey the stronger points of the performers although it was clear to see it got better as the scenes progressed. I didn't see a lot of compression artifacts or video noise although both were present from time to time. The audio was presented in a stereo English track but the vocals were dubbed poorly and the music droned on like the typical techno style porn music well known in foreign porn.
Body of Review: Foreign porn has long provided fans of gonzo porn with a stunning array of women that many porn fans have come to appreciate. They almost always do anal sex, act like they're into the sex and generally have few limits. While I've noticed some of them are a bit cold, perhaps playing hard to get, others are very willing to openly display the kind of warmth that has led many of us to seek them out (Rita Faltoyano comes to mind). In any case, Hustler's series of vignette driven scenes, Precious Pink, has been an interesting one to watch over the last several years. I've watched nearly half of the volumes and found that while the scenes are very formulaic, they bring home the bacon by displaying a lot of lean, all natural European gals all nicely made up to look their best. Rather than write a couple thousand words describing the cast going through the same general motions, suffice it to say that if you've enjoyed any of the first ten volumes of the series, you'll probably enjoy this jam packed collection of scenes (one from each of the initial ten offerings) more than you realize. Getting over three hours of material from a Hustler release is akin to winning the lottery in terms of fuck for the buck so this DVD will be well worth checking out if that's the type of thing you desire. The scenes ranged from indoors to outside settings, lingerie was commonly worn by the gals and while some of the sex was mechanical, a number of scenes had a lot of energy with chemistry to enjoy. Here's a list of the cast per scene and where the scene originated from:
Scene One: Precious Pink 1: 2001: Szilvia, Boldizar
Scene Two: Precious Pink 2: 2002: Nicole, Vicotr H., Andres
Scene Three: Precious Pink 3: 2002: Bridgette, Jursen, Martin
Scene Five: Precious Pink 5: 2002: Yvette, Boldizar
Scene Six: Precious Pink 6: 2002: Melissa, James, Paulo
Scene Seven: Precious Pink 7: 2002: Anita G., Nikolett, Richard
Scene Eight: Precious Pink 8: 2003: Indira, Csaba, David Perry
Scene Nine: Precious Pink 9: 2003: Svytlana, Dick Dart, Dave
Scene Ten: Precious Pink 10: 2003: Lara, Bobby Bagor, Pierre Le Pants
Summary: A Touch of Pink is one of those compilations that prove the old adage, "quality over quantity" wrong since the quality of the scenes wasn't the best Hustler has to offer yet good enough to warrant a rating of Recommended. The extras were limited but the amount of fuck for the buck was tremendous, especially given the nature of the women in the show. Hustler's recent infatuation with compilations is a fine thing given how much material they include on most such releases but a few tweaks might make them even better. The addition of material made specifically for the compilation would be great (maybe a short description of the scene with anecdotes from the director, cast or someone at Hustler) but I'm splitting hairs given the nature of the beast. Check it out if you want to get off a number of times.
