Visiting her adventurer husband George in the African jungle, Jane
(Rosa Caracciolo) wanders off into the woods one day - only to walk right
into an animal trap that renders her unconscious. Now lying in the jungle
unconscious for any larger amount of time is as good as a death sentence,
but fortunately for her, Jane is found by a savage man, Tarzan (Rocco
Siffredi), who carries her off to safety. When Jane comes to, she's
understandably scared, but so is he, who has never seen a woman and has no
idea why he has an erection all of a sudden. But both quickly overcome
their fears, and Jane shows Tarzan what to do with his stiff penis - if
you catch my drift ...
George and his expedition are worried shitless
when they can't find Jane, but all their attempts to track her down add up
to nought, so they return to Jane's mansion at the edge of the jungle. A
few days later, Jane returns to the mansion as well, with Tarzan in tow.
George is quick to throw a jealous fit regarding the affections Jane shows
for her savage saviour - and yet, Jane refuses her self to Tarzan once
they have returned, much to the jungleman's dismay. When Tarzan has come
to terms though with the fact that Jane is no longer his like in the
jungle, he starts to shag all the other women of the household (and there
are quite a few), much to Jane's dismay.
Finally, Tarzan and Jane talk
everything over: She would leave George for Tarzan, but only to take him
with her to her native UK, and Tarzan needs to be in the jungle - so after
a good-bye shag, they can do nothing more than bid farewell to each other
If you haven't noticed from my synopsis, this is a hardcore
porn movie - but let's be honest, if there ever was a piece of popular
fiction that begged for a porn treatment, it was Tarzan ...
and you know what, as a porn version of a popular myth, Jungle Heat
is pretty good: The production values are adequate, the sex scenes are
elegantly outbalanced by an actual plotline, and there are no atempts at
(bad) comedy that destroy so many porn parodies. Also, the girls are all
pretty good-looking and show a certain enthusiasm in the sex scenes. The
film's main asset though is Rocco Siffredi, not so much as a performer but
as an actor. Now to be honest. Siffredi is not the best actor in the
world, not even within porn, but Tarzan is a role he seems to be cut out
for, and not only physically: He's just a natural at playing the primitive
reacting mainly on primal instincts and resenting civilisation - and as
such, he really carries the film ...
