Man At Bath is the newest film from Love Songs director Christophe Honoré, starring gay pornstar François Sagat, which marks his beginning as a "traditional" (as in: non porn) actor in a motion picture. He will be sharing the screen with Chiara Mastroianni, daughter of Catherine Deneuve and Marcello Mastroianni. It is a major break for Sagat, who was chosen by Honoré because he "redefines the notion of masculinity". The film, originally supposed to be a short film, will be released in France on September 22nd, after being screened at the Locarno Festival in Switzerland. The story, set in Gennevilliers and New York City, revolves around a gay couple who tries everything to prove to each other they are not in love anymore. The title is inspired by a Gustave Caillebote painting at the National Gallery in London.
François Sagat has definitely been capturing auteurist filmmaker's attentions lately, since he is also starring in Bruce La Bruce's arthouse porn L.A. Zombie.
