Norman Kaye won the AFI’s best actor award for this stunning portrayal of Charles Bremer, a strange and sensitive man, whose sensual appreciation of all things beautiful led to his bizarre and erotic relationship with a young bi-sexual named Lisa. “Man of Flowers” is both erotic and richly amusing with a tragic after glow.
