Gigola DVD


It's 1963 and Paris is sizzling with sex. The stylishly butch Gigola spends her days roaming chic cafs, taking on the criminal underclass, enticing pretty femmes away from their pimps, breaking hearts and making enemies along the way. Her evenings are spent in famous lesbian cabaret bar Chez Moune, picking up rich older women who keep her flush. Based on the long censored novel of the same name, Gigola captures a little known chapter in Parisian history in which eroticism defied conventional morals.

De Palma (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown), Eduardo Noriega (Open Your Eyes, The Devil's Backbone), Marisa Paredes (All About My Mother, The Skin I Live In) Thierry Lhermitte (The Dinner Game), Marisa Berenson (I Am Love) and introducing Lou Doillon, daughter of Jane Birkin, as the eponymous Gigola.
