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

Unusual, engrossing, brilliant
28 January 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Gigolos was recommended to me by a friend who caught it at the Cambridge Film Festival. He told me that he hadn't been sure about it at the time but that it had stuck around in his head for at least a week. It's not hard to see what he means: the subtlety of the story and the camera-work is beguiling, but it is only afterwards that the brilliant set-pieces and innocent conversations return to you with their full force.

Filmed in a mockumentary style, and with very low key acting on the part of the two male leads, The Gigolos carefully draws you into it's smooth, suave, subtle atmosphere like a 3am conversation in a private inner-city bar. This is balanced by the cameos of the more famous actresses, who steal each scene they're in, before you're returned to the murky, dark relationship between Trevor and Sacha.

There are moments of good comedy, but the real draw of The Gigolos is the way it draws you into their world. Much like the vintage Mercedes that should earn its own credit in the film, it is measured, balanced and deliberate, aware of its class and its potential but designed not to show off. It takes you on your journey, with a grace that makes you forget that you're travelling.
