Théo and Hugo encounter each other's bodies in a sex club. They talk, things blur into the haziness of unbridled desire, then take shape for a moment as their gaze meets before they resume their exploration and lose themselves anew. A few moments later the two men feel the need to go outside. Together they drift down the deserted streets of nocturnal Paris. Suddenly they find themselves confronted by a sense of reality that wipes out their freedom and aimlessness and lends each step an existential helplessness. Do they want to know more about each other? Will their trust be rewarded? What are their expectations?

Public-service message porn
14 November 2019 | by SuaveknightSee all my reviews

I honestly had no idea of the graphic nature of this "gay-themed film" and it really is 3 short films; First, it is in fact full-on pornography at the beginning (very much like "Short Bus"). Second, it quickly turns into a public-service message about HIV. Third, it becomes a romantic love story set against the backdrop of Paris. I would have to say, this was well-done for the budget and subject matter, but in ALL 3 parts the editing could have done away with more than half of each scene (which is a LOT of filler; the characters walking, running, cycling etc with no dialogue). I would say good effort, good script, good acting, good cinematography (some of the shots were pretty complex and very well blocked); but very long and poorly edited (one scene had a facial close-up of the Doctor for over a minute...just her moving her eyes and twitching her lips, as if someone guaranteed her a few minutes of face-time regardless of why or how).
