POSTCARDS FROM LONDON
Country boy Jim, beautiful and talented, ends up among Soho's "Raconteurs" — a group of male prostitutes who have dedicated themselves as much to art as to sex. Jim, however, suffers from Stendhal syndrome, a rare psychosomatic disorder that makes him hallucinate or even faint when he looks at art. This doesn't make his extraordinary job any easier, especially not when he becomes a kind of appraiser who is tasked with distinguishing forgeries from original works of art.
