In a Viennese underworld that’s somewhere between the theatrical glam of Fassbinder’s Querelle and the cinéma du look of 1980s France, Patric Chiha (Domain) follows a group of Bulgarian Roma who support their families back home by taking on gay sex work. Through stylized interviews and staged situations, these (mostly straight) men frankly discuss their rates, customers’ requests, and the financial hardships they face. Nevertheless, the film never shies away from the inherent humor and playfulness of human sexuality: every aspect of desire gets burlesqued, be it cash or water sports.
