Pornography in a movie does not relate at all to the evidence of extreme sexuality, but above all concerns the proposition of sexuality scenes that seek to reaffirm arousal through concrete sexuality. The pornographic register, therefore, concerns the impossibility of images to propose the dimension of the dream and to emancipate themselves from the status of concreteness. Through the analysis of three movies, the Author tries to reiterate how scenes of extreme sexuality which initially are concrete, it is possible through the iconic function of cinema, to find humanity and intimacy in stories that initially appear blocked in their status of concreteness. Tenderness is combined with sexuality; landscapes gradually enter the tone of the story; the pain can be not only felt, but also suffered. Pornography leaves space to illusion and perhaps even disappointment.
