Marc Dorcel (English)
Getting dirty has rarely looked so good. It's appropriate Marc Dorcel's longest running and most famous series is called "pornochic", because the cutting-edge elegance that title implies is the cornerstone of the company's longstanding appeal. Impressive productive values and attention to mood and detail make the French company's movies art to stimulate, arouse, and entertain. Dorcel movies also represent many of the progressive attitudes toward sex typically associated with French culture, including a relaxed attitude toward steamy affairs, a robust enthusiasm for daring sexual scenarios, and a tendency to break up bourgeoisie boredom with erotic adventures.

There's a whiff of the scandalous writings of the Marquis de Sade, Gustave Flaubert, and other French literary lions in Marc Dorcel movies, right down to the slyly suggestive use of a wax seal as their logo and the pen-and-ink X offsetting the word "luxure".
In fact, company founder Marc Dorcel (born Marcel Hersovitz) got his start publishing erotic fiction in the 1960s, before diversifying into photo and video content in the '70s and '80s. The company is a frequent winner of XBIZ's European Studio of the Year, a testament to their continued commitment to quality adult features. Dorcel also frequently releases English-language versions of the studio's top titles, broadening their appeal to an even wider audience. They are known for featuring European stars such as Anissa Kate, Lola Reve, and many more.
The Marc Dorcel (English) line presents movies revamped for English-speaking audiences, using dubbed dialogue, voiceover narration, or re-edited footage that de-emphasizes dialogue sequences.
