SYNOPSIS

Aleksandr is an illegal Russian immigrant living alone in New York. Traumatized by the death of his mother, Aleksandr struggles to make ends meet and ultimately turns to escorting. As he descends into the dark world of the New York sex trade, he must also come to terms with who he is. But will his search for himself and a stable home come at a price? Pau Masó presents and stars in this raw and darkly sensual portrait of a young man who's pushed to the edge of society and his own sanity.

Any sentimentality displays emotion in some way excessive to the circumstances that incite it. It can take many forms. The most common is to gush, to overdo feelings of love or friendship, to exaggerate how much one cares, to say more about one's feelings than the feelings themselves convey. One of the less remarked upon is the kind that exaggerates the awfulness of things. Instead of painting the famous rosy pictures, it sees everything darkly, morosely, punishingly. This is the sentimentality of many melodramas that turns what might have been tragedy into kitsch. Aleksandr's Price is that sort of kitsch. Degradation follows degradation, each one more cruel than the one before. Nearly everyone behaves abominably. Those few who don't merely act insensitively, stupidly, or foolishly. Much of the dialogue is cliché. The convention of the psychiatric office is used so obviously, with so little sensitivity to language and dialogue, relying almost completely on other bad movies for how such sessions might sound and look, that it turns, if not comic exactly, certainly into scenes that are nearly ludicrous in their implausibility.

Some viewers seem to think that this might be a gay movie. The director, in an interview included on the DVD, says that his title character is straight. That would seem an odd way of understanding him from what the movie itself presents of him; in fact, it would seem to contradict that depiction. But what is certain is that all the gay men in the movie are depicted as utterly self-interested, mean-spirited sexual predators, largely incapable of anything resembling kindness, sensitivity, or gentleness. The one halfway decent gay man in the movie turns on Alekandr, too, in the end, when he nears his most desperate.

The lead actor, who is also the director and screenwriter, lack sufficient charisma to carry a film. The story lacks credibility and the entire enterprise has an air of amateurishness about it. The plot doesn't have much originality and isn't very credible. Perhaps with a better and more attractive actor in the leading role, the film might have come off better.

Interesting and sad story about one of many illegal immigrants who prostitute for a living. Paul Maso wrote, produced, directed, and starred in this timely piece of reality. Paul is incredibly beautiful and believable as the naive young Russian immigrant trying to survive in a very hostile and indifferent new world. He possesses great sensitivity, charisma, and a stunning pair of luscious lips. In fact Maso is the only one in this tasty film who can actually act. The rest are real amateurs. Authentic New York City scenes like the High Line are a nice touch. I hope Paul Maso will make more films that appeal to gay movie fans like me.

Pau Maso is a director to watch. This film, with Maso as director, lead actor, writer and more represents an original voice. Telling a story around a character, though having suffered much, who is essentially reactive to his circumstances, is an achievement. Lots of the film is very sexy, but it never retreats from the focus, this man trying to make a life that he can respect. I was very engaged by it, and I am sure others will be as well. Not five stars? I cannot make up my mind whether a little more editing was required, or whether the cyclic nature of the dilemmas Aleksandr faces require the full 108 minutes. Nevertheless a great film, and Paul Maso playing Alelsandr is a treat. Despite being a low budget film, the cinematography is terrific.

I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Not the best actors, not the most lavish of scenery or the best script, but the end result was not bad. I found myself wanting to hurry things along several times, but I was caught up in Aleksandr's plight and kind of knew where everything was going. The main character was not bad and held onto his accent well, average acting for an indie gay film with next to no budget, I would only recommend to those who understand that it is slow moving, limited scene props, lots of close ups, and not an extensive script to work with. 3.0 stars 07092014.

The filming was good and sharp, But the story line. Yes can be somewhat true A Spanish portraying A Russian. If that character did not look or dress like a high professional model/escort. I'm sorry PAU you should of cast some one else too play that role....You are to Handsome for me too sympathize for that character.

This film wanted to be better than it was. It is about an illegal Russian boy who finds no other option than to be an escort in Manhattan upon the suicide of his mother. As it is portrayed, this sad beginning is overwrought and descends into melodrama. The acting is marginal at best although the cast is often attractive. As bad as the actors are a lot of the problem lies in the writing and directing. I only made as far as a quarter into this film. I kept going back wanting to like it, but regretting it each time.

Hallucination, desperation, possible madness, it's all here and it's painful to watch. By film's end you wonder what you just saw. AND, you wonder why the Spaniard playing a Russian never learned to refuse the dosed beverages that he repeatedly guzzled down from different, but always nefarious, tricks. The over-wrought emotion and lightning-fast mood swings in several of the characters, including our main character, Sasha -- who was only once called Sasha by a father he had never previously met.
