From Gay Essential
Released at the Locarno International Film Festival in 2010, Man At Bath (Homme au bain) is an experimental French film that follows the controversial love story between two gay men. Starring porn actor François Sagat and Omar Ben Sellem, the movie was written and directed by Christopher Honoré and also features singer and actress Chiara Mastroianni.
“This is not Brokeback Mountain. These are honestly written gay characters. None of them are saints, some are sinners.”
— In The Realm Of Cinema
“The meandering style and setting recalls the production approach of Steven Soderbergh’s “The Girlfriend Experience,” which used non-professional actors and similarly lingered on the edge between fiction and documentary.”
“In a feature that marks the polar opposite of his earlier work Close to Leo, here we find writer and director Christophe Honoré deliver a sexually explicit story of separation.”
