Nathalie Baye, the legendary screen beauty whose career was launched in Francois Truffaut's Oscar winner Day for Night and has included such international hits as Tell No One, Catch Me If You Can, La Balance and An Affair of Love, stars as Judith, the host and owner of a home shopping TV program in A FRENCH GIGOLO. Divorced, successful but wary of love, Judith hides a dark secret from everyone but her sister: She regularly pays for younger male lovers from a host of escorts on the Internet. Judith's erotic adventures are wonderfully impersonal - and satisfying - until the day she chooses Patrick (Eric Caravaca, Son Frere), a handsome and charmingly sheepish man who is clearly not a pro. "Patrick" is actually Marco, a happily married guy just desperate for money to keep his wife Fanny's (Isabelle Carre, Private Fears in Public Places) new hair salon afloat. Marco doesn't want his wife to find out where all the extra money is coming from. Fanny doesn't want the money to stop flowing. And Judith doesn't want to fall in love. None of them get what they want. Or do they?
