The Germination of the AIDS Epidemic from a European view point - The Witnesses review by KW

Spoiler Alert
03/11/2018

A very interesting film show the germination of the AIDS epidemic in France and the impact it had on the lives of various members of the community. Holding the film to gather was the enduring relationship between Manu and Adrien who later becomes one of the leading activists in Paris with his connections to the health service. Sub plots also help to keep the story line moving and added an extra dimension to film. Having lived through this period I found it fascinating and thought provoking at the same time.
