A dark yet affecting film by Gael Morel who also wrote the screenplay.  It's an interesting character study of Vassili, a male prostitute who's not so much fancied anymore because of his age; and Angelo,  a young man whom Vassili saved and welcomed to his fold, with the same profession as his.  Almost instantly they became lovers as seen from the countless intimate scenes, which, though involving nudity was almost always tastefully filmed.  Vassili's killer side surfaces when clients demean him and Angelo seems to tolerate it. There are some disturbing scenes with old and greying men in this film but that particular scene where a wealthy yet twisted elderly man made them do some ghastly things , even placing a rat on Angelo's back was downright freaky and ghastly.  There's blood and murders in this movie but then again, it's also the unfolding of a love story between Angelo and Vassili, each one always tender to each other and expressing genuine emotions, despite of their dark and sinister sides.  This is worthy to be included in your weekend movies-to-watch list!

Chilling, erotic and compelling!  This is the story of Vassili and Angelo, who became lovers and work together as prostitutes with old men mostly as their clients. Angelo has a shady past and Vassili has a killer instinct,two personalities who are opposites yet devoted to each one. A trip to a former client/ beneficiary of Vassili turns into a deadly and tragic scenario and the film's ending was acceptable although viewers can't seem to fathom why it has to really result to murders, even the old man who was kind enough to  invite them to his sprawling property was not spared.  Some loose ended ideas but nevertheless, suspenseful and engrossing to watch!  Do check this out!
