Storyline

Danny is a romantic young man looking for love, the son of a gay dad and a top model mom who died of an overdose when he was still young. He wants to become part of a society that values luxury, glamour and appearances above all, by becoming a model. He embarks on a quest to find his real identity in a world that would make him gay because of his work, because of his paternal heritage, or simply because of his looks. He takes modeling to its extreme by becoming a stripper and finally finds the love he was looking for on the set of a porno shoot, with Karine, a photographer who's as voyeuristic as he is exhibitionnist. But destiny soon catches up with him... Written by Anonymous

Even the worst film ever made may have some compensations. In the case of DANNY IN THE SKY, it's scene after scene of glorious male pulchritude. It would appear that all male cast members were required by contract to doff their shirts at least once per scene. It goes without saying that all the boys in this film ("boys" in the gay-male sense: young men between the ages of 18 and, oh, 26) are beautiful specimens -- it would be pointless for them to be otherwise -- with special props to Thierry Pepin in the title role, who may have the most flawless physique in cinematic history. Unfortunately, every time an actor opens his mouth, the film -- intellectually -- goes down the tubes. The writing, acting, sets, and direction are all uniformly awful. Since this film was made in French (in Quebec) with English subtitles, the only way to watch the DVD is sans subtitles, or with the sound turned off altogether, which should help concentrate your mind on the only possible justification for DANNY IN THE SKY: Thierry Pepin's body.
