Billed as a modern Bonnie & Clyde, directors Pascal Arnold and Jean-Marc Barr’s sexual thriller follows a hot young Frenchman Chris (Pierre Perrier), and his new lover, Aurore (Lizzie Brocheré), as they roam the Gallic countryside seducing and killing gay hustlers. Is Chris doing this because he’s a tormented closet case?  And why is Aurora helping to dispose of the bodies of gay hustlers he bangs and then kills? There’s more questions than answers, but Perrier’s numerous charms make it clear how his character can get away with murder.
