The credits for Hungry for Love tell us that director Rolf Hammerschmidt had some help from the Bel Ami casting department. But all you have to do is take one look at his gorgeous, smooth cast to know that. This romantic tale of a young man who is searching for true love unfolds in a dreamy, erotic fashion that is reminiscent of director George DuRoy’s work. But credibility is strained when our hunky leading man is rejected by numerous guys. Things really get out of control when he lays himself down on some railroad tracks and decides to end it all. Will the love of a good man save our dude in distress? We’ll never tell, but we will divulge that in a whopping eight scenes (and more than two-hour running time) you will see lots of pretty boys frolicking in the water and going at it in all combinations in the French countryside. Lovely videography and mouthwatering meat only add to the fun. Almost enough to overlook the annoying editing effects and the disconcerting way the models play to the camera. But all is forgiven when one stud picks up a guitar and earnestly croons the title theme. Sweet. (Triumverate Productions)
