Every now and then, Netflix has a new show or a series on its platform. The plethora of shows available on the platform is praise-worthy. Although the viewer has a lot to choose from, it sometimes gets challenging to select a show or film to watch. The same is the case with the erotic Spanish series, Diary of a Gigolo on Netflix. The drama series recently made its way to Netflix on September 7. Here’s all you need to know about Diary of a Gigolo.
Diary of a Gigolo on Netflix: Synopsis, cast, and more
Diary of a Gigolo is an erotic-murder mystery Spanish series that, in recent times, has become a popular genre. Starring Victoria White, Jesús Castro, and Fabiola Campomanes, the series follows the story of a gigolo. The viewers are also introduced to another side of the story, a struggling young widow. As fate would have it, the two meet later in the series, and chaos erupts. Emanuel (Jesus) is a very sought-after escort. But his destiny begins to unravel when one of his frequent clients, Ana (Fabiola), assigns him a task. And Emanuel’s life changes forever when he breaks the most prominent rule of his business by falling in love.
Initially, the series has a slow buildup, and very few scenes incite the rush in the viewers. Moreover, the entire series is in Spanish. Over ten episodes, the series tries to hook the audience with sensual scenes and create intrigue by connecting it to a murder mystery. Thrill, action, and mystery, this series has it all.
Argentine director Sebastián Ortega will act as the front-runner for the show. Francisco Denis and Mexican actress Adriana Barraza are also a part of the series.
Reviews and Ratings
Diary of a Gigolo has a rating of 7.4 on IMDb, which shows that the series is relatively popular.
As per Marticid, the series “is disappointing that it is not dubbed in English, and we have to rely on the subtitles. Although the story is difficult to take seriously, it is an entertaining number in more ways than one. It is a true telenovela experience, and we are betting that it will be an absolute hit on Netflix.”
“Overall, Diario de un gigoló, as it is in Spanish, has more depth than you would expect and is a decent whodunnit,” reads Nextflicks‘s review.
