Whether audiences are drawn more to the one-on-one homosexual romance or the larger scale story of activism at large, what cannot be denied is that BPM (Beats Per Minute) has authenticity and sincerely going for it
[Director] Campillo tries to give both personal and political equal weight (or at least equal screen time), and proves more adept at the latter: never have highly regulated meetings to propose policy and review results been so richly engaging.
Here, as characters hit the streets for demonstrations, hit the discos to relax and hit the skids when they get sick, you're there with them, pulse pounding out more beats per minute than you might have thought possible.
BPM resists becoming a tragedy, even as it documents one. You could say it resists becoming the resistance, too, but there'll always be a chance to make that movie. In the meantime, Campillo has given us a hard-won, loving look at history.
A wrenching love story, set in Paris in the early 1990s, told against the background of ACT-UP AIDS activists fighting for their lives. Ron Campillo's raw and riveting film musters the emotional power to floor you.
