Gay-Themed Film Theo & Hugo Is a Beautiful Love Story Beyond the Opening Hookup

Come for the 18-minute orgy, stay for the beautiful love story.

The new film Paris 05:59 Theo & Hugo, from directors Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau, is the perfect love story for the age of hookups. The movie, in French with English subtitles, unfolds in real time over 97 minutes. While the film has garnered plenty of buzz for its 18-minute opening scene of an orgy at a gay sex club, it’s the unfolding of real intimacy over the course of the movie that will stick with viewers.

Starring young actors Geoffrey Couët and François Nambot as Theo and Hugo, the film has already won the Teddy Audience Award at the Berlin International Film Festival, and critics have made comparisons to the beloved gay-themed film Weekend from Andrew Haigh.

Theo and Hugo opens in New York, Los Angles, and San Francisco on January 27.
