Movie synopsis: Lonely middle-aged businessman Daniel approaches a young Ukrainian hustler, Marek, at a Parisian train station and naively gives him the address to his apartment. Their date does not go as expected when a gang of young East-Europeans turns up, invades Daniel’s home and strips it bare of all valuables and furniture. Daniel is left traumatized, but a few days later, shy Marek arrives to fulfill his sexual promise. And thus their fragile, secret romance begins. Robin Campillo’s thought-provoking feature is a well-paced study of gay male sexuality and desire, set against the backdrop of current immigration issues of modern day France.
Awards and Nominations: Venice IFF (2013) - Best Film (Horizons Award)
