Exhilarating 90s-set drama following a group of activists who are members of an AIDS awareness group, Act Up-Paris. Campillo draws on his own experiences in the group, capturing the heady pleasures of dancing the night away in a club and the party atmosphere of a pride march, and the film as a whole is a near-tangible celebration of life and love.
