Hubert Benhamdine Movies
A Gallic, raven-haired leading man with a Mediterranean look, Hubert Benhamdine
seemed tailor-made for dashing lead roles in his native France and apt at both dramatic and comedic portrayals. In lieu of beginning with bit parts and working his way up through supporting turns to lead billing, Benhamdine
jump-started his career as a headliner. He debuted on film with the most prominent in the 2002 international arthouse hit Le Chignon d'Olga
as the conflicted eldest son in a family whose matriarch suddenly dies. After a succession of additional projects with exposure that largely remained confined to Europe, Benhamdine
reemerged as the star of director Hormoz

A twentysomething bisexual takes many wrong turns down blind alleys in his search for affection and understanding in this drama from France. Antonin (Hubert Benhamdine) is a young man who is desperate for love and thinks he's found it with Alex (Franck Victor), a handsome and talented musician. However, Alex is also a heroin addict, and when he succumbs to an overdose, Antonin is crushed and begins drowning his sorrows in anonymous and often degrading sex. Antonin becomes a prostitute and frequently finds himself infatuated with his clients, but most treat him with contempt except for Baptiste (Hicham Nazzal), who shows some compassion for the troubled young man. Sadly, history repeats itself and Antonin once again falls for a dope addict, a beautiful but damaged woman named Juliette (Caroline Ducey). The first feature film from photographer Hormoz, J'Ai Rêvé Sous l'Eau (aka I Dreamt Under the Water) also stars Christine Boisson. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
