Fading Gigolo

Comedy


 

Fioravante decides to become a professional Don Juan as a way of making money to help his cash-strapped friend, Murray.

The themes of love, morality, and mortality are explored as a florist ventures into what is known as the oldest profession in the world. "Fading Gigilo" is richly textured and unexpectedly charming thanks to the characters and larger than life actors who play them. When watching, tenderness is found in the smallest moments, a glance, a sigh, or a word not spoken. The only discordant note comes from the soundtrack as the background music dominates at times. Be seduced.
