Daniel Auteil plays a French man, Pierre, who absconds from his family in Paris to the bright lights of London in order to write a book. One day he is beaten up in the street by the bouncer of a strip joint and Tom ,a young male escort, comes to his aid. The two become mates and Tom encourages Pierre to enter the world of male escorting.
Not a bad film but not incredibly good either. However an interesting peek into a fictional world of male escorting in London where good money is to be made by sleeping with mostly attractive women. Does not sound bad maybe I should give it a go, if it is as well payed and glamorous as this film makes it out to be!
The two central characters are pretty good and the film develops into a fine conclusion. My favorite scene is near the end when a devastated husband (played excellently by Peter Mullan) confronts Pierre for sleeping with his wife and charging her for the pleasure.
This is worth a watch just don't expect too much from it.
