Karim (Salim Kechiouche), a young male prostitute of Arab descent, makes his living moving amongst Paris' wealthy and jet-set. As his anger and frustration with cold sex and glamour grow, Karim traces with pitiless honesty the lines of his painful past.
The story of GIGOLO is a surprising metaphor for the anger, the confusion, the frustration and the vulnerability experienced by many young Arabs in France and leading to the violent riots which occurred recently in France.
