BPM (Beats Per Minute)
DIRECTOR: ROBIN CAMPILLO
CAST: NAHUEL PéREZ BISCAYART, ARNAUD VALOIS, ADèLE HAENEL, ANTOINE REINARTZ
One of 2017’s greatest, back on screen. Campillo (Les Revenants, Eastern Boys), a veteran of AIDS awareness protest group ACT UP, assays his experience into this intimate portrayal of the crisis in 1990s Paris, still a near epidemic thanks to the inactivity of François Mitterand’s government. The personal and political are inextricable here, as a burgeoning romance between ACT UP newcomer Nathan (Arnaud Valois) and longtime agitator Sean (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart) unfolds amidst an urgent organized struggle with life-or-death implications.
