1993. Jacques is a writer living in Paris. He hasn’t yet turned 40 but – sick though stable with AIDS – already mistrusts that the best in life is yet to come. Arthur is a student living in Brittany who refuses to think that everything in life might not be possible. He wants the same creative community that Jacques outgrew ages ago, the pair’s eventual love affair becoming a shrewd window into intergenerational contrasts and a treatise on conflicting ideals.

Sensuality and mortality commingle defiantly in this radiant and wrenching new film that offers a variation on the formula of Andrew Haigh’s delicate two-hander Weekend for the Francophile set.

Represents yet another major stride in the treatment of gay relationships on-screen. Variety
