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
This was evidently a labor of love (if you'll excuse the expression) for Filiberti who seems to have been involved in all phases of the planning and production. Too bad! It just doesn't come together very well, in large part because the star does not convey in his person or his acting much that is interesting about the life of a porn star. There is some amusement as we watch the reactions of his family when they learn how the son and brother they threw out of the ancestral home in France has earned his living. And it is pleasing to see how he is reconciled with his brother. I found the extras on the DVD more interesting than anything in the film, particularly how simulated sex is filmed to look real. But basically, I'd call this a boring show.
