Nice story of a young ignorant provincial guy who ends up soliciting off the streets of Paris in spite of his original distaste for male prostitution... Quite a common story mind you but idealists have to eat as well!
His relations with older people seem always to be relations of interest, he still has a lot to learn about life... He then falls for a young prostitute.
The movie is interesting but the treatment is a bit superficial, there is a lot more to say about the end of the prostitution taboo in French society among others.
