Audience Member Excellent, the beautiful, fantastic François is wonderfully convincing in his role, he has come a long way from selling his (big, lovely) bottom. This story is true and exciting, watching paint dry would be of far less interesting. The actors are believable and captivating, while Sagat sits around and poses as the director intended him to. I don't think anyone could love him more than the audience does. This is a fully realised opportunity, and I will remember this film and its talented actor's performances for the rest of my life. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member I went to this film contest & the director of this film came to explain that he wanted to explore a new way of making films, low budget, faster to produce & still accessible to the mainstream audience! The film isn't a masterpiece, far from it! Lots of people actually left the screening room before it was over. The subject is a different from the the usual archetypes, we follow a young 'Hustler' separating from his boyfriend, and going through a series of sexual encounters with young lads from the burbs! It's raw, straight forward, disturbing at times, experimental, funny & cheesy . The main actor, a former gay porn star is very charismatic & holds the film on his sholders. A weird object of 'art'? An ode to the male body? A look at what masculinity means nowodays? Hard to say... One thing is sure, after watching this i definitely know that anyone can make a cheap film, the rest isn't much my cup of tea. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Dire, the seedy, creepy francois sagat is far from convincing in this role, he needs to go back to selling his bottom, this story is false and boring, watching paint dry would be of more interest,the actors do not come across as real, and sagat sits around posing, loving himself more than anyone else could, it really was a wasted opportunity, talented actors could have made this an interesting film, as it is, its instantly forgettable and nothing more Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member This is the best movie from Honoré because it's the most experimental, arty one, that does not try to recreate some self-centered past. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member La duración de esta cinta es impresionante y creo que pese a que pareciera sacado de la manga, cumple con algo muy importante y es que en todo momento estamos esperando que Omar reaparezca en la vida de Emmanuel y por eso es que pareciera que la cinta va muy lenta. Y lo va. Por esa misma razón esta película no podía durar más de lo que es e incluso pareciera que la anà (C)cdota era cuestión de minutitos para ser resuelta, como un cortometraje, a eso me refiero. No es mi trabajo favorito, definitivamente, de Honorà (C). Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member A big to-do was made about this film, the second one in a short time starring French gay porn star Sagat in a non-porn role (if the name doesn't ring a bell, I affectionately dub him Hung Lego-head Bubblebutt Boy, which really describes him perfectly). Chiara Mastroianni's career must be in bad shape or she was doing someone a HUGE favour, because I have no idea why she is in this film. I could actually go on endlessly enumerating what is wrong with this product, in detail, but I need to get some sleep so let's be brief: if you're expecting a film with a plot, actual dialog & characters with a personality, then you'll be disappointed. If you're expecting explicit sex with a little story wrapped around it, you're better off getting one of the major porn studios higher-class releases, because you and your penis will be disappointed. Ergo, this movie serves no purpose at all, except to once again prove that a little well-stirred hype, and a hint of calculated controversy will always result in more exposure than a product necessarily warrants.
