Dark, dangerous and supremely sexy, Our Paradise casts a thrilling glance at the lives of two rentboys in the heart of Paris. Aging prostitute Vassili stumbles upon an unconscious young trick in a notorious Parisian cruising ground and takes him home to nurse his wounds. It's not long before the two men discover a burning connection and become lovers and accomplices, fleecing clients one-by-one. However, when Vassilli s violent past comes back to haunt him the couple decide to flee the city in hope of finding a place they can be happy and content forever. But can they truly escape their inner demons? Slick, steamy and endlessly captivating, Our Paradise is a thrilling affair not to be missed.

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.Read more ›
If this puts you off paying for 'Our Paradise', please don't let it. The merits of the film - acting, design, location, music, continuity and above all direction are all successful. Morel's old chum Stephane Rideau plays seriously in a minimalist kind of way. His portrayal is realistic as he acts his age as an ageing rentboy in Paris who comes across a beaten up younger version of what he use to be (Dimitri Durdaine). The latter also gives a winning performance as well as being easy on the eye. I liked his persuasive vulnerability.Beatrice Dalle dominates the screen with the sheer personalty she brings to her character. She must be a director's dream. The plot then expands to include passion, love, jealousy, revenge, mental illness and serial murder! Brilliant just rather rushed. In French with generally excellent subtitles.
