Caught in the middle of a mid-life crisis, Pierre (Daniel Auteil) is desperate for change, and so leaves his wife and son and heads off to London to write a book. He scours the capital's streets to find a subject for his masterpiece and eventually meets male escort Tom (Stuart Townsend). Tom then introduces him to the sordid underground world of sex, drugs and prostitution, thereby giving him the inspiration he needs to begin his novel. However, Pierre is soon spending so much time immersed in his new-found world of women and drugs that he has little energy left for his writing.

While the cover of this DVD may suggest otherwise, this movie is not pornographic! So if you're looking for pornography, please look elsewhere. I'm really disappointed that they chose such a cover for this DVD because it doesn't reflect the content of the movie at all. Don't be mislead and please don't judge a DVD by its cover!
The story is about a struggling French writer/lecturer, Pierre (Auteuil), who abruptly leaves his family one day and travels to London because he feels that he has lived a boring life; "a life without any risks". Pierre, who is clearly suffering through a mid-life crisis, hopes to find some inspiration for his novel in a bustling new city. Whilst in London, he accidentally befriends Tom (Townsend), the charming owner of a cafe who also happens to be a part-time male escort. From this chance encounter with Tom, Pierre eventually scores a menial job working for Tom at his cafe. It is also from Tom that Pierre accidentally stumbles upon male escorting as a means to make his ends meet. But instead of spending time on his novel, Pierre eventually becomes fully entrenched in his risky new lifestyle, thereby leaving no time for his writing. As a result, the relationship between Pierre and Tom gradually becomes strained as the lines between employer, colleague and friendship are blurred. Not only does Pierre lose his only friend, Tom, he also loses his family and ultimately, himself.
Contrary to what you may have heard, there is not a lot of French dialogue in this movie.Read more ›
It is about Daniel Auteuil who came to UK who has a family but has some problem. He is a writer-actually a wanna be writer is a better word.
He meets this young escort man who also works at a cafe. He suggests him to work as an escort man and he barely succeds to do so with the first woman. From then on, he prety much did his job will.
But maybe because of his age-he is maybe about late 40s or early 50s by then- he cannot eract all the time so he begins to use drugs and everything becomes caos.
He also falls in love with another hooker woman who has a young pimp.
His wife found out his job and all, his life becomes more and more confused.
The nudity is very very mininal since it is Daniel Auteuil. He does not act for erotic movies.
The phase of the movie is very fast so you should fasten your seat belt.
At the end he get rid of everythin and succeds to write his first novel. We see him publish his first novel and brings it to the man who first help him to initiate for the escort business.
Everything seems great. But right before the movie ends it indicated that the publisher's wife is having sex with Daniel. What's that? He used his escort man ability to publish the first novel.
There is an old word saying once a whole, always a whole.
This movie is about that.
It is quite interesting how Daniel acts as a shy escort man. He can do most any roll.
He is sure a great French actor after all.
I`m a fan of Daniel Auteuil, and he gives a realistic portrait of a impotent book writer out on a painful journey to find back to a life he can appreciate. He has temporary left his wife and familylife without telling why or where.
He`s out of work and money, and after being beaten up on the street, he is taken care of by another man, that offers
him a job as escort for ladies of all kinds. He`s thrown into many different situations, but specially his debut is
one that really makes you feel the tension. After a while he change personality, get self confident, and able to
really make reflections on what he`s gotten in to. He learn a lot from different clients personality, and their
reasons for hiring a male escort. He`s on his way to have something to write about.
No point in reveal much more than this, and ruin the film for new buyers.
