Storyline

Set in the south of France, Riki Kandinski and his elder brother Fredrico, come back to their family castle for their father's funeral. They haven't seen each other in a long time and Fredrico knows nothing about his younger brother, but he notices that he is making big money and living in luxury all for a few days work a week. By pure chance, Fredrico gets his hands on a gay porn magazine and sees his brother in it. According to Riki, he's had more than six hundred men and only four women. The brothers who grew up apart will have to get to know another again but both their lives change drastically when they witness a woman's death in a car crash. Written by russart.com

how bad can a film get?
12 July 2003 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the screening in Berlin Film Festival. It could be described as quite a long commercial of it's director/leading actor. 70 % of the film was the almost naked body, fake blonde hair and shiny lips of the actor/director blown up to full screen. It's story lacked the depth of even the cheesiest Brasilian TV series. What astonished me most is how such a bad film could be screened in one of the most prestigious festivals of the world.
