You know It's time to retire from the sex-for-cash industry when a fellow hustler asks you to find another corner because 'you're older than my tricks.'

Audience Reviews for Our Paradise (Notre Paradis)


Aging hustler Vassilli finds a young hustler robbed and unconscious in a Paris park. The young man (Angelo) has no where to stay, so Vassilli takes him back to his apartment. The two begin a relationship. When Angelo discovers the more violent nature of Vassilli's encounters, instead of fleeing he teams up with him and they begin robbing their clients. Pretty soon their violent past catches up with them and they flee to Lyon where they attempt to leave the life of crime behind them. It's quite an engaging story with interesting characters. The script spirals out of control in the last reel and the ending is just a bit "oh." The writer/director Gael Morel has done better than this in previous films. The stuff in Paris is gritty and intriguing, but once the story goes elsewhere I lost interest. Stephane Rideau is an engaging screen presence and though his character doesn't think so, is getting better looking with age. Beatrice Dalle is wasted here and the kid is terrible.
