Mauvaise Passe (The Escort) is a very watchable French made movie that has the typical feel of a continental film but with a British setting and mainly British cast which for me makes an intriging movie that is unlike anything that i have seen in a long while. This is a film about a middle aged french man who after a family crisis travels on the spur of the moment to London only to get caught up in the male prostitution business and eventually drugs. The acting from Daniel Auteuil and Stuart Townsend is top draw and the story is strong enough to have you interested throughout the film. The only flaws in the film are that it is hard to believe that the man we see at the start of the film , who lacked confidance , could go on to become an escort and there is also a scene where we see him at a posh party and a drunk toff starts talking and the acting in that scene is appalling from the socialite. Dont let that put you what is a very good film. 8 out of 10.
