Woody Allen plays a pimp and John Turturro his gigolo employee.
Accept the brilliantly absurd premise of Fading Gigolo and you’re in for a hilarious ride. In addition to Allen‘s pimp and Turturro‘s gigolo, legendary screen sexpots Sharon Stone and Sofia Vergara turn up as eager clients. The film’s most surprising and affecting element is the romance that develops between Fioravante and Avigal, a widow played by Vanessa Paradis.
The musical journey is reproduced on this album, which features pieces Dean Martin (Sway), Trombone Shorty (Neph), Vanessa Paradis, Dalida and M’Barka Ben Taleb, among others.
