Dir. Ninja Thyberg
2022, Sweden, Netherlands, France, 109 min
English & Swedish with English subtitles

Ninja Thyberg’s debut feature film Pleasure is a journey into the Los Angeles porn industry through the lens of newcomer Bella Cherry (Sofia Kappel). Strong, self-confident and determined, Bella embarks on a mission to become the best at any cost.

Pleasure is written and directed by Thyberg with a stunning first time performance by Kappel, who anchors an ensemble of adult industry actors.

Reviews

It’s not an exposé on what pornography does to women as much as a harrowing examination of what the workplace expects and allows from women and men.
- Alonso Duralde, The Wrap
This impressive, unflinching debut from Ninja Thyberg eschews the victim narrative which tends to shadow stories focussing on women in the porn industry, instead following Bella’s cool-headed navigation of this treacherous and frequently exploitative world.
- Wendy Ide, Screen Daily
