Storyline

Sacha is an aging, well-established London 'male escort' with a select clientèle of weekly socialite ladies, such as baroness James, who expect an impeccable service he can only provide thanks to his in-living 'orderly', handsome 'clever Trevor', who moonlights as nude arts class model. Ben is a rising novice, who seeks their coaching. When Sasha makes a bad fall, Trevor must cover during his recovery, but jealous Sasha is far from grateful. Written by KGF Vissers

a film with the same edge as The Office or Curb Your Enthusiasm
28 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Gigolos had its first UK screening at the excellent Cambridge Film Festival last week. It's an amazing debut feature film from writer/director Richard Bracewell and writer/actors Sacha and Trevor. First, I was expecting it to be about the glamorous life of a male escort in the West End. Instead, it is a film about the search for love in a world of aching loneliness. Every character - the clients and the gigolos themselves - are disappointed and lonely, but it's temporarily forgotten for one magical evening. This was brilliantly done by Bracewell - you don't know whether to laugh, cry or cringe. It's got the same edge as The Office or Curb Your Enthusiasm - these guys have taken the "comedy of embarrassment" and applied it to film with great success.

Fantastic also to see Susannah York on the big screen again - for a fan of Tom Jones, The Killing of Sister George and Superman her cameo as a bored West End fashion agent who finds the "London men are boring" is a real treat.
