Revisiting elements of his own experience, Robin Campillo has created a bustling fresco of the personalities and politics of the ACT UP Paris LGBTQI community during the 1990s. The sense of urgency, authenticity and attention to detail is exemplary as individual stories come into sharper focus. We follow hot-headed Sean (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart) as he falls under the spell of gravely handsome newcomer Nathan (Arnaud Valois). A moving, lump-in-the-throat love story is matched by a celebration of the power of activism to awaken an indifferent world in this superb drama.

Compellingly combines elegy, tragedy, urgency and a defiant euphoria... full of cinematic life

Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Outstanding... sexy, insightful, profoundly human
