I enjoyed this movie a lot more than I expected to based on reviews on other sites. There is a good bit of nudity, but not a lot more of Dimitri Durdaine than anybody else, and (in contrast to at least two others, including Stéphane Rideau) none of him that would qualify as "full frontal" - "full side" is more like it, and even those rarely show much except skin. Some other reviews give the impression that he almost never wears clothes and that the camera examines every square inch of his body, neither of which is true at all.

What there IS more of in this movie than most is naked middle-aged and older men, which may bother some people but delights me. Except for Durdaine, all of the naked men in this movie have pot bellies, including Rideau (who's getting comfortably close to middle age himself), which is wonderfully refreshing in an age when only bronzed and hairless gym bodies under 30 ever appear in American gay movies (Can we say BOR-ing?).

Now that nudity's out of the way... There's something I like a lot about Gaël Morel's movies, but I'm not sure what it is. There's something very natural or unpretentious about them, something familiar and almost comforting, regardless of the subject matter. I feel like I'm among friends when I watch his movies. They FEEL good in some mysterious way comparable movies by other directors don't. He has an eye and a style and a language that are quite distinctive but not easy to define; whatever it is, I like it.

Don't let the crime element fool you: Our Paradise is above all else a love story.

Very sexy and sleazy and a great story , think it is more than just a gay film , but explores the problems of rent boys and the disgust they can feel for their clients . Its all very very french , very existentialist and odd and rather like those great french films of 1970s. I loved every minute of it .

Our Paradise (Notre Paradis) is the latest film from Gael Morel of `Le Clan' fame. It stars Stephane Rideau (`Presque Rien') as Vassili, an ageing rent guy who cruises the streets of Paris looking for tricks. He is also a dab hand at `finishing his clients off' and I do not mean in a `professional' way - yes he's a murderer. Then one wet, Parisian night he stumbles across a young man who has been attacked and robbed. He decides to help him and ends up taking him home. The boy has no name and says no memory of before he met Vassili.

So they decide to give him a name and hit upon Angelo (Dimitri Durdaine in his big screen debut). They then start a passionate relationship that does not exclude paying clients. Then they start to work as a team, but Angelo is attracting most of the attention and Vassili can't let his own proclivities stay dormant for too long. They end up seeking their paradise which will involve others, with unexpected consequences.

This is a really original piece of cinema, it is acted superbly the shots are framed with the eye of an artist and it is still tasteful, despite some of the less wholesome scenes. We have a plethora of scenarios especially with Vassili's clients and the stories of a number of the characters all told along the way. This is one of those films that you don't even think about looking at the clock, it is paced so perfectly and flows so well; there is some nudity as you would probably expect, but I did not feel any of it is gratuitous. For gay cinema fans or even fans of gay cinema this is an absolute must.

Murder meets beauty.
That's it...A trail of murders, beautifully sculpted by Stephane Rideau....Plenty of male nudity...the beautifully sculpted body of Dimitri Durdaine.
The delicious Beatrice Dalle, still the queen of French cinema, completes the need to see.

What is it about Gael Morel's movies that they can get under your skin so? This is a compelling psycho drama, as disturbing as it is absorbing to watch, both fascinating and horrific at the same time. Controversial at times but worth watching all the same, as are all Morel's movies.

I was offered this film because of my interest in the respective theme. I regret to say it was too harsh, even tragic for me.
The action is fine, but I cannot help feeling sorry for those guys.

I'm not a Fluent french speaker, however this movie captured my attention from the outset, quite extreme scenes occasionally with some compassion in the main story line involving "family life" A well made movie edging on the air of desperation and all that aging, wealth and youth brings to the world on both sides of the viewing podium.

Paradise can be fround in some funny places and with some funny people.
and the bond that develops between the two leads is very strong and surprising
