120 BPM.

This emotional movie tells about the lives of AIDS activists in early 90s Paris. Its a bold and vivid story based on the directors (Robin Campillo) own life experiences with ACT UP an international direct action group whose aim was “to bring about legislation, medical research and treatment and policies to ultimately bring an end to the disease by mitigating loss of health and lives”

This ultimately is the story of survival, a story of people they were condemned to death because of their sexually preferences and a story of authorities, both political and medical, that had no empathy towards what they saw as non Christian conformity. A brave story that may be forced to shed a tear over.
