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

Sexy and Touching. ****
21 July 2003 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at "Outfest," the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian film festival. Yes, the writer/director/star DOES seem to give his face and body a fair amount of screen time. But he plays a porn star! Hello?? Like Mel Brooks might say, "If you got it, flaunt it." The film has some very moving moments, great dialogue, artful performances. All in all, of the half-dozen or so pictures I saw at "Outfest," this one was the best.
