|Description||Les Dieux Du Stade - 2004
This documentary was shot while photographer Francois Rousseau was photographing 46 beautiful nude young athletic Frenchmen for a 2004 calendar. The calendar sold 1 million copies.
The documentary is all in French and is not subtitled. It is filmed in black and white, which actually heightens the contracts between light and dark and shows the male body in the most flattering light.
The documentary focuses on the models rather than the photograhpers and support staff. I guess this is the whole point, but while watching it you wonder what the make-up artists, the hairdressers, the lighting technicians were thinking. Some of the young men were obviously heterosexual whereas a few shots had homoerotic tension during the photography, but not overt sexual play takes place. The most interesting thing to me was how relaxed these nude men were around 6 or 8 photography staff.
This 140 minute DVD is a tribute to young male athletic beauty. That is all you get, nothing more.
