A story about an Algerian handsome young man who prostitutes himself in Paris.?
29 August 2004 | by (f.r. France) – See all my reviews

It is a film very sober, intimate, no brilliant, but very right about the "milieu" of the masculine prostitution in Paris. It' looks like almost a documentary. No special effects, no spectacular sequences, no zeal, no demonstration. Just a main idea which conducts you to the point: the death, permanently. With the collaboration of two actors remarkables: Mohamed Hicham and Hammou Graïa (we remember him in the film "L'Homme blessé" of Patrice Chéreau, and also his great prestations as a theater actor), this director makes an impressive film with simplicity in the present cinematographic context.
