Paris 05:59: Theo & Hugo

Paris 05:59: Theo & Hugo

Run Time: 97 Minutes


Friday, October 14th


9:15 PM

A throbbing techno beat accompanies a man to the lower level of Impact, a Parisian club where men in pairs and threesomes engage in steamy sex to the pulsing music. Men around the room, in various states of arousal, sometimes join the action in progress while others are content to watch. Hugo, quite obviously pleasuring someone, catches the eye of Theo, and it’s not long before Hugo and Theo are together, devoured by their desire for each other. Their sexual play is intuitive like intimate lovers, sizzling, passionate, and explicit. 

And that’s just the opening scene.

Writers/directors Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau lead Theo and Hugo from the club to Theo’s apartment, building the intimacy between the two men through revealing dialog and surprising detours. Hugo believes a deeper connection came from their meeting, more love than sex, even going so far to call their coupling a “contribution to world peace,” while Theo expected nothing more than a casual fling. Hugo’s relentless enthusiasm chips away at Theo’s reserve, and their possibilities expand as they walk, bike, and run through the mostly-deserted city. With the charm of pre-dawn Paris as its background and nuanced performances from Geoffrey Couët as Theo and François Nambot as Hugo, PARIS 05:59 THEO & HUGO is a sweetly refreshing look at modern love and relationships. – Elisa McGovern
