"Really good"
5 stars"

It's a really good film. There's a scene where activists throw fake blood on the walls inside of a pharmaceutical company building that doesn't seem to care about those with HIV/AIDS. It's very symbolic of them literally having blood on their hands because they're not doing enough to solve the epidemic. It was a very well crafted movie, even though I had to read the subtitles, it was well worth it. If you like this film, you may also like the foreign gay themed film ‘Center of my World’.

Description

Winner of over 20 international film awards, including the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival, BPM (Beats Per Minute) is the remarkable new film from Robin Campillo (They Came Back, Eastern Boys). In Paris in the early 1990s, a group of activists goes to battle for those stricken with HIV/AIDS, taking on sluggish government agencies and major pharmaceutical companies in bold, invasive actions. The organization is ACT UP, and its members, many of them gay and HIV-positive, embrace their mission with a literal life-or-death urgency. Amid rallies, protests, fierce debates and ecstatic dance parties, the newcomer Nathan falls in love with Sean, the group's radical firebrand, and their passion sparks against the shadow of mortality as the activists fight for a breakthrough.
