The story of a beautiful Frenchman and his sexual encounters was directed by the lover of both Rudolf Nureyev and Nestor Almendros, both of whom contributed (uncredited) to this famous erotic movie. Lost for decades, the negative was found in a garage in Alabama where it had been lovingly stored by the director’s brother.

“The film is a time capsule of what gay fantasies were almost 50 years ago and it’s still sexy.”
