They come from all over Eastern Europe: Russia, Romania, Ukraine. They are Eastern boys. The oldest appear no more than 25; as for the youngest, there is no way of telling their age. They hang around the Gare du Nord train station in Paris. They might be prostitutes, but there is no way of knowing for certain. Muller, a discreet man in his late fifties has his eye on one of them - Marek. One afternoon, Muller gathers his courage and speaks to him. The young man agrees to come visit Muller the following day, at his place. However the next day, when the doorbell rings, Muller doesn't have the faintest idea that he has fallen into a trap.

Unless intolerance of the human sexual spectrum completely disables your appreciation for great film; the straights out there would benefit by opening their minds to this excellent flic. There is nothing graphic on display here to feel squeamish about anyhow; certainly nothing that the gay/trans community had to endure from the 70's/80's television straight-sex product. This actually comes off as an at-times tense thriller/crime film, with a romantic element that breaks boundaries- boundaries of the mind; the politic; and the heart. This film manages to make commentary on the natures of exploitation, wealth, and particularly on the idea of "property" and how those who have been dis-entitled can come to lack a recognition for this idea. Great acting is what carries this work; propelled by an excellent Eastern-European-tinged EDM soundtrack that just defies you to join the party. What a party it is, too; as the multi-culture-clash of modern free-market Europe's have's and have-not's come together with the at-times nail-biting moments that characterize a classic thriller. A beautiful work.
