‘Everyone will talk about the 18-minute gay orgy at the start, but the real achievement lies in how Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau capture love at first sight’ – Variety

Teddy Audience Award - Berlin International Film Festival 2016

Paris 05:59 Theo & Hugo is a piercingly honest portrait of desire and love in the city of lights. Theo and Hugo hook up in a sex club and then head out into the streets of late night/early morning Paris. Unfolding in real time, this film from legendary queer filmmakers Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau (Cockles & Muscles, Born in '68) is fueled by searing chemistry between the two lead actors and the authenticity of the filmmaking. Recalling Andrew Haigh's Weekend, Paris 05:59 Theo & Hugo is a snapshot of modern gay life that is as romantic as it is raunchy: an instant queer classic.
