Storyline

Danny is a romantic young man looking for love, the son of a gay dad and a top model mom who died of an overdose when he was still young. He wants to become part of a society that values luxury, glamour and appearances above all, by becoming a model. He embarks on a quest to find his real identity in a world that would make him gay because of his work, because of his paternal heritage, or simply because of his looks. He takes modeling to its extreme by becoming a stripper and finally finds the love he was looking for on the set of a porno shoot, with Karine, a photographer who's as voyeuristic as he is exhibitionnist. But destiny soon catches up with him... Written by Anonymous

Nudity cannot make up for everything that's wrong with this film.
16 July 2003 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

I had the distinct displeasure of seeing this film at the Philadelphia Gay & Lesbian Film Festival. I could write a novel about all of the things that were wrong with this film, but instead I will break it down into just a few parts:

a) The cast - Sure, the himbos were nice to look at, but unfortunately any skin baring did little to ease the trauma of the terrible performances that were unfolding before my very eyes.

b) The script - I doubt if the writer(s) of this film had ever taken a Screenwriting class. The movie is filled with wooden dialogue, inplausible set-ups and not one of the characters has even one shred of likability (they're all pretty much wastes of human beings, except for Danny's dead model mother who we know nothing about, except she did drugs). I don't mind having unlikable characters in films, but if you're going to make us hate everyone at least do it in a film where something interesting happens.

I also believe the director is to blame. What made him think that people would want to watch a trainwreck/disaster like this? Just because you have some attractive men taking off their clothes-it doesn't mean that will sustain an audience's attention for 90 min.

AVOID THIS MOVIE AT ALL COSTS!!!!!!
