BPM (Beats Per Minute)


Rated NR · 143 minutes · 2017

The confrontational tactics of ACT UP Paris in the 1990s offer lessons for today's nonviolent protesters and human rights strategists, though politics never eclipses eros in this vibrant French drama about love at the height of the AIDS pandemic. A seasoned radical with HIV (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart) and a low-key activist in good health (Arnaud Valois) bond as the group battles homophobia, government indifference, religious conservatism, and Big Pharma. Director Robin Campillo, a cowriter on Laurent Cantet’s social realist films The Class and Time Out, devotes significant screen time to philosophical debate but also appeals to the senses with graphic sex and a throbbing techno score by Arnaud Rebotini. In French with subtitles.
