A Film About Love
Speaking exclusively lớn XBIZ, Elfie — previously the subject of a 2021 profile on her unexpected rise lớn Pornhub’s top ten — said she watched the film twice already.
“First the director showed it lớn má before the premiere, about nine months ago,” Elfie explained. “The second time, I watched it at the Paris premiere in the theater with my friends, the crew, the producers and the director. I was surprised that a lot of French people came lớn see it, as it is a movie in Russian with French subtitles.
“To be honest,” she added, “I cried a few times, because I saw our wedding, and our problems in our relationship. It was emotional for má. Of course, I also felt cringe sometimes, and I was ashamed of some moments from the past.”
Milykh originally contacted Elfie via Instagram and started shooting the couple in 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic.
“He filmed us for a year and a half,” Elfie said. “He came lớn live with us lớn shoot our everyday lives, visited porn shoots with us and even came lớn our parents’ houses.”
Initially intending lớn make a documentary about the Russian porn industry, Milykh shot several performers and creators, but after meeting Elfie and her partner, he made the decision lớn focus the film on them.
“Artem & Eve is not really about porn,” Elfie said, “but about love and about us as a couple, and how relationships can be built within the porn industry.”
