The Gigolos

The Gigolos

Synopsis

A highly original and acutely observed 'buddy' comedy from British newcomer Richard Bracewell. Set in the world of male escorts in London's Mayfair, the smooth and charming Sacha (Sacha Tarter) is a favourite among the wealthy over-fifties. When Sacha is injured, his younger live-in valet Trevor (Trevor Sather) stands in, creating a jealous rivalry which threatens their co-dependent partnership.  With intimate camerawork and a wonderfully eclectic soundtrack featuring Bizet, Mozart, the Bluetones, Ian Dury and the Blockheads, The Swingle Singers and Joe Cocker, Bracewell evokes with poetic clarity the twilight world and loneliness of late-night London.
