Synopsis:
As the AIDS epidemic tears through their community, the members of ACT UP Paris are fighting for survival. One day, as outspoken radical Sean (Nahuel Perez Biscayart) strikes up a conversation with shy newcomer Nathan (Arnaud Valois), they have no idea that their lives are about to change forever. From the writer of Palme d'Or winner 'The Class', Robin Campillo, and based on his own experiences, this vibrant and deeply emotional drama rushes with youthful energy, balancing powerful themes of social justice with euphoric moments of spine-tingling sensuality. Urgent and effecting, it's a film about life, death, passion, tragedy - and, above all, the will to survive.

Tour de force - 120 BPM (Beats Per Minute) review by GD

Spoiler Alert
03/08/2018

From the political to the personal all aspects of the appalling treatment of aids and its consequences are movingly portrayed. Courage, anger, humour, love, passion, indifference and bewilderment are all here and all expertly communicated by a young cast. From the brilliant portrayal of activist meetings through the set piece demonstrations to the heart rending portrayal of personal loss we were totally engrossed.

Different Aspect of the Initial Response to AIDS - 120 BPM (Beats Per Minute) review by KW

Spoiler Alert
25/08/2018

Fascinating film covering the initial responses to the AIDS epidemic in Paris and how the community got together to fight the system to get answers, expose issues, make people be aware of what was going on and at the same time explore the relationships, friendships that developed through it. Having lived through the period I found it very thought provoking, opened my eyes to issues that I was not fully aware off and how a community came together to fight the cause! If the period interests you a film not to be missed.
