Storyline

It's summer, the end of adolescence for Henri who does not go on vacation. Accompanying his sister to the station, he meets a man who immediately attracts him. He then discovers another world, nocturnal, masculine, crossed by frustrated desires and sexual violence. Henri becomes the shadow of John, burning with his contact but looking for pleasure and, perhaps, love. Written by Hervé Guibert

One excellent performance can't save a lousy film.
8 November 2002 | by endora60See all my reviews

Jean-Hugh Anglade is excellent as the teenaged boy who wants to be a whore to please the man he loves, but the rest of this film is so bad--acting, writing, cinematography, and everything else--that Anglade's performance is wasted. Sad to see so fine an actor in such a garbage flick.
