TOP 100 REVIEWERon 18 November 2012
This has been made on a shoe string and so inevitably suffers for it. The main characters are only three people with writer and director Todd Verrow making a cameo at one point. It is about Claude (Yann de Monterno)who finds a drunken hunk on the street and decides to take him home to make sure he is safe. The following morning this bloke awakens with a hangover and an apparently insatiable need to suck the living daylights out of Claude. This is Brad played by Kevin Miranda, he says he is a vacationing American. They decide to meet up again and see where things lead.

Claude also has a best friend in the shape of Catherine (Florence d'Azemar),who is actually really good. They act as emotional crutches for each other in a really nice way. Well there are a few other things that happen, but essentially this is a Parisian love story with croissants, red wine, Gaullois cigarettes and the obligatory shower scene. There is some bedroom rutting but it's all pretty basic. The most annoying thing for me was the soundtrack which is all repetitive disco trance stuff with a back beat that sounds like an underwater beating heart and it just grated.

There was nothing new here, nothing inspiring and very little in the way of actual plot, the twist just about saved this from being a total waste of time, hence my rating but this is just ok, and there are so many more films out there more deserving of your attention, so only buy if you must have all films of this genre. The acting is ok but this is just a triumph of budget over ideas.
