Storyline

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 russart.com

Excellent portrayal of Self-Loathing
26 November 2005 | by wtcouncilSee all my reviews

I am an avid fan of foreign films, so i understand if the dimwits west of the Atlantic Ocean are baffled by what the auteur is depicting in this film.

It is about the soul-sucking world of pornography and how it can leave even its most "Adored" stars empty inside when they decide to not let their "work" define who they are as humans.

While the idea that a stranger could insinuate himself into the life of a child for whatever good-hearted reason, is preposterous, it does exemplify how we as society are unforgiving; even, when we profess to be "christians." GO figure.

I enjoyed the film and can only pity those who judged it for its outside appearances. But, then that is ONLY ONE of the messages that the films delivers...Judge not the book by its cover.
