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

the ophidian lure of the subtle dominator....
21 October 2007 | by (Fairfax, VA) – See all my reviews

In this highly unusual film, Bernard Giraudeau perfectly embodies the ophidian lure of the subtle dominator...which engenders a good deal of sympathy for the young man experiencing the ongoing regimen of psychological manipulation, brainwashing, and downright torture imposed on him. M. Giraudeau is a wonderful actor, probably one of the very few who could portray this character. I could not help thinking that his character M. Delamont is exactly like Fassbinder's Leopold, the sinister and tyrannizing character who drove his younger roommate/lover to suicide in "Water Drops on Burning Rocks", released the same year as this film. This film almost seems a sequel: as if Leopold changed his name and refined his techniques enough to cause the events in this film. Bravo, M. Giraudeau. I can't imagine anyone else being able to play either of these difficult, fascinating and repellent roles.
