Storyline

Nicolas, a handsome, young waiter, is befriended by Frédéric Delamont, a wealthy middle-aged businessman. Delamont, a man of power, influence and strictly refined tastes, is immediately smitten by Nicolas' charm. Lonely and phobic, Delamont offers Nicolas a lucrative job as his personal food taster. In spite of their differences, a close friendship begins to emerge between the two men. However, their bond of trust and admiration soon spirals downward into a dangerous game of deceit and obsession for which neither is prepared. Written by Attitude Films

Fascinating! Haunting!
13 November 2001 | by (Santa Monica, CA) – See all my reviews

What a sophisticated, engrossing roundelay! A wealthy neurotic man in his 50s leads an adventurous, susceptible younger man into a psychological/emotional dance that's at once intriguing and cruel. Bernard Rapp's direction is subtle and well-paced, with sudden twists and some stunning images. Both main actors, Bernard Giraudeau and Jean-Pierre Lorit (seen in "Red") perform as though custom-fitted to their roles. That takes professional skill! This film offers more than superficial entertainment. I highly recommend it!
