French gay porn actor Francois Sagat is making his move to the big screen in the premiere of Homme au Bain (Man at Bath).

The film premiered last week at Switzerland's Locarno Film Festival, a showcase for arthouse films.

Sagat, who can be seen under the same name in numerous Titan Media titles, plays Emmanuel, a gay hustler living with his lover Omar (played by Omar Ben Sellem) outside Paris.

After the pair quarrel, Emmanuel is left brokenhearted to fend for himself as Omar makes his way to Manhattan. Even as Emmanuel is busy turning his best asset (his hot ass) into cash, he resentfully pines away for his lover.

Director Christophe Honore told French gay website that he was interested in Sagat because he “redefines the notion of masculinity.”

The film opens in France on September 22.

Sagat's heavily muscled body and trademark tattooed head can also be seen in Director Bruce LaBruce's controversial gay zombie flick L.A. Zombie. The Australia classification board recently banned the film from screening at the Melbourne International Film Festival.

In the film, Sagat stars as a schizophrenic gay zombie who believes he can bring the dead back to life by having sex with them. The film includes graphic scenes of zombies having sexual intercourse.
