Storyline

In Brooklyn, the bankrupted owner of a book store Fioravante is forced to close his family business. His best friend Murray tells him that his dermatologist Dr. Parker dreams of having a threesome and would pay a thousand dollars to have one with her friend Selima. Murray proposes to be Fioravante's pimp and they start a male prostitution business. When Fioravante meets the Jewish Avigal, who is the widow of a rabbi, they fall in love with each other. But the Jewish Dovi loves Avigal and will make life difficult for Murray. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

They don't make 'em like that any more. Luckily, they do.
5 June 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This has all the hallmarks of a Woody Allen metropolitan comedy (with Woody Allen in a lead role) - and John Turturro has written and directed it very much in the style of, say, ANNIE HALL. It's a character-driven morality play about love and sex in the city, with the feel of an upscale repertory company. And it's got Sharon Stone, still just as foxy as when she played Catherine Tramell in BASIC INSTINCT; the notion that a middle-aged man would get paid $1,000 to climb between her sheets is deliciously improbable (and very appealing to this middle-aged viewer).

As we start another summer of CGI-heavy 3D blockbusters, FADING GIGOLO is a welcome return to They-don't-make-movies-like-that-any-more. Luckily, they still do. Great acting, a crisp sophisticated script, smooth direction, a terrific score and a bevy of gorgeous women: 90 minutes of unalloyed joy. Cinema at its best.
