Already generating plenty of press coverage for its explicit 18-minute opening scene set in a Paris sex club, PARIS 05:59 THEO & HUGO is much more than a voyeuristic turn-on. It is one of the sweetest, most honest portrayals of first love, the film following the titular men over the course of one night as they explore the city, each other, and the euphoria and insecurity that fill hearts and minds with the possibility of true love.

When frizzy-haired city dweller Theo (François Nambot) spots the provincial but more experienced Hugo (Geoffrey Couët) across a room crowded with charged, sweaty bodies, he is determined to have him. Theo manages to maneuver his way into Hugo's field of vision and, ultimately, within reach. The pair quickly lose themselves in their lust and desire, oblivious to those around them. They soon leave and drift down the deserted streets of nocturnal Paris. An offhand comment, however, jolts the pair into reality and forces each man to question his ideas about love, personal responsibility and desire.

Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau (The Adventures of Felix, Cote d'Azur ) have crafted a sensitive, emotional look at intimacy and relationships that could unfold in almost any city. Anyone in the modern gay world will identify with the issues it raises.
