Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Hervé likes 20-year-old guys. But it s not always easy to get what you desire when you re different from the models gracing magazine covers. Will things change when he meets a 21-year-old hunk who is a devotee ?
From Remi Lange - The Road to Love - comes an intimately realized story of desire and longing that revolves two around strangers who both yearn for that spark that will bring them closer

1.0 out of 5 stars Odd and weird March 31, 2009
By Alceste
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I seldom turn off a DVD half way into the material, but this was just too much for me. I was not alarmed by it, it just didn't capture my interest. The first part of the film lingers on the dressing and undressing of a man who happens to have multiple missing limbs. The film is in French and the pronunciation and enunciation is hard if the viewer is not a native speaker; this is complicated by the poor sound quality. The two central characters are rather bland and uninteresting and I just didn't come to care about them enough to care how they worked out a relationship between the object and and the younger man who is fascinated with a limbless man. Clumsy and slow moving, this is not that engaging film with a raw edge that I expected.

This is a short movie about a gay man, born without hands and feet, who lives in the French countryside far outside Paris. His need for physical intimacy (a need practically all human beings share) leads him to connect online with men who are turned on (or at least not repulsed) by his disability. The movie concentrates on one such connection, with a younger man who seems to fit the bill perfectly and travels (with considerable hardship because of the remote location) to spend a day or two with the protagonist.

I watched this movie with a lot of trepidation because of things said by amateur reviewers on other sites. "The sexual scenes were extremely graphic in nature and could easily disgust anyone" and "Warning: the sex scenes are not for the squeamish, since the protagonist is indeed a quadruple amputee" did not exactly inspire confidence. (He's not an amputee, by the way: he was BORN without hands and feet.)

Fortunately, those statements told more about those reviewers than about the movie. The sex scene (there's only one) was about as UN-graphic as a sex scene can be unless it came from Disney. No penises, no penetration, really nothing at all except a hairy bare bottom and the stubs of the star's arms and legs doing things fully-limbed folk might envy. But disgusting? Not the sex.

The first reviewer I quoted (like the second, who at least was more honest about it) must have been disgusted by the star's lack of hands and feet, because no sexual activity was shown (suggested, maybe, but not shown) that could accurately be called graphic, much less disgusting.

I liked the movie pretty well. It certainly wasn't the typical, tiresome American gay movie, either starring, produced or written by Matthew Montgomery (Thank God).

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for everybody June 23, 2011
Format:DVD
"Devotee" is french, low-budget story about handicapped gayman's life.
Its leading character was born without arms and some parts of his legs. Despite that, he lives in the country on a kind of farm.
The film deals mainly with the love and sex aspects of his existence. And I think this is the part that may put off some viewers (but I really don't know why, in the end we are all humans and we all have the right to make love).
The title devotee is a boy who is into sex with disabled people. Unfortunately, he treats them like subjects that give him pleassure. There are not too many dialogues, but the one after they made love is very true.

It is definitely one of the most unordinary films I had chance to watch.
