Passionate people speaking openly about their lives and loves, it's stirring stuff.
It's an inspiring, often surprising watch.

| Original Score: 4.5/5
A revealing, deeply moving piece of work.
A beautifully assembled film which pays close attention to nature and judiciously incorporates black and white photographs and home movie footage alongside its interviews.
It is astonishing how much white heat is generated by the conversations that follow, and 45 year old documentary maker Sebastien Lifshitz is to be congratulated for selecting such a special bunch.
Offers an intriguing glimpse into attitudes of old France as they talk about their experiences over the past 60 years.
An engagingly meandering reflection by a cross-section of older French gay men and lesbians on their youth in the shadows, their path to living openly, and the serenity they have achieved over the course of their lives.
Clever and compassionate.
Gives a face to the unseen and a voice to the inaudible, spinning a sedate, respectful account of the gay rights movement as experienced by its foot soldiers.
