[PLAIRE, AIMER ET COURIR VITE]
In this intimate, disarming romance set against the vibrant backdrop of gay life in early 1990s France, Jacques (Pierre Deladonchamps) is a worldly-wise HIV-positive writer living in Paris — and not expecting to find love any time soon, if ever again. When he meets Arthur (Vincent Lacoste), a curious, self-assured university student from Brittany, sparks fly. But as their fling gradually and unexpectedly evolves into a deep and tender bond, both men find their worlds transformed. What emerges is a complex, unconventional and utterly human love story, touched by humor, loss and hope. Official Selection, 2018 Cannes, New York and Chicago film festivals. DIR/SCR Christophe Honoré; PROD Philippe Martin, David Thion. France, 2018, color, 132 min. In French with English subtitles. NOT RATED
