Michael Ninn shatters time and space to deliver the story of history's most sexual monarch (or is it?), assaulting the senses with sound and imagery whose sole purpose is to Turn You On - and son of a gun if he hasn't produced Art at the same time! Audrey Hollander is amazing as a woman being driven crazy by boyfriend Otto Bauer - so much that she retreats into the white-faced persona of Russian monarch Catherine the Great, imagining herself having anal sex (reverse cowgirl/horsie/doggie) on the snow-covered steps of massive buildings, helping handmaidens get it on with a strap-on in the public square, and taking two cocks up her ass and one in her mouth in the fire-lit great hall of her mansion. But simple descriptions can hardly convey the grandeur of the artistic accomplishment here. Ninn has often been criticized for shooting lackluster sex in beautiful scenery, but this part-film/part-video creation is as hot as anything on the market today. In the annals of adult video history, Catherine will be long remembered as an example of the heights that can be reached with a real director at the helm.
