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
I just saw this at Outfest here in Los Angeles. The most unbelieveable aspect of this film is that a gay porn star can become as famous as he is portrayed here. I can't even think of a straight porn star that is that well known, except maybe John Holmes and that was 20 years ago. This movie had a few funny moments but now that I know the star was also the director and writer I understand why it was filmed in such a narcisstic fashion. Every other shot panned up and down the stars body in various stages of undress. This movie tried to imply that there is more to a porn star than what we see on screen (his brother accepting his lifestyle & trying to adopt a kid) but in the end followed the cliche as to what happens to many in real life (drugs, suicide, etc). The actor who played the brother was probably the best actor in this movie but that isn't saying much.
