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

A sweet movie......
4 April 2004 | by (Los Angeles, usa) – See all my reviews

i was happy to see this smaller italian film in LA...always very nice

to see flicks from my country of origin...released here in the States! A very touching,deeply moving and heartfelt feature debut,this

one... I was quite impressed by the elegant and personal visual style of

this young and handsome director who is also the star of his

picture! And by the storytelling which is most compelling and never gratuitous,even considering some slightly oversentimental

moments.... What really pleasantly surprised me was to notice of how well all

the supporting characters were developed giving the movie insight

and quite a defining flavor,and also to finally see an italian movie

dealing with porn,homosexuality,sex and personal choices without

moral tones or any judgements establishing quite a modern tone. A special mention goes also to the technical support especially to

the cinematographer and production designer who photographed

and dressed Rome with a melancholic yet very hip look. I'd like to see a new movie soon from this young and talented

director hoping that he will keep all of his fresh sensitivity and

cinematic quality,and since i am an actor who loves stories on

people with actors bringing feelings to the screen,i hope he will

always be in touch with the emotions of all of his characters,like in

Adored......
