A movie this well observed, this drenched in naturalism, this candid and poignant, can only spring from reality.

Joins Phantom Thread and Loveless as a monumentally good film of 2018 ... Mention must be made of Nahuel Pérez Biscayart, who reminds me of seeing the young, wild-eyed Pacino in Dog Day Afternoon ... outstanding and should not be missed.

And yet BPM (meaning beats per minute) is a beautiful film, full of drama and humour, love and politics, argument and action.

It doesn't try to be a comforting film, and it certainly isn't. It's strident, unwieldy and confronting.

As the film moves fluidly between protests, meetings, club nights, and affairs...we are left with the impression of a time and a place in which nothing, not even death, seems inevitable.

The storytelling not only has an immediacy, it matches issues to individuals so that the campaigning is never merely about the public profile.

The film gives off such a vivacious energy that it never feels of the past; it is a moment preserved exactly as it should be.

Campillo's engrossing human rights drama is top drawer foreign-language cinema and a must-see film.

It's a funny, heartbreaking film, a little too long perhaps, but wonderfully evocative of an intense chapter in recent Parisian history.

Rebotini's dissonant, humming, house-inflected score - and the metronome-like heartbeats that underscore the action - are reminders that, even on their deathbed, a person has a pulse. In its dying gasps, the film grasps at life.

It sets the pulse racing in what emerges as an adrenaline rush of a requiem.

There's a poignant undertow to the rush.

There are elements to admire - committed performances and noble intentions - but as cinema it's a non-starter.

There's love, tragedy and laughter in an inspiring, visually arresting look at a group who are living the hell out of life and not going down without a fight.

A deeply human drama, which celebrates the power of activism to awaken an indifferent world.

Fly on the wall filmmaking at its best, this is pure cinema - an enthralling, enveloping experience that seizes you fully, effortlessly mixing politics, sex, life, death and art.

Perhaps more impressively [director Robin Campillo] squeezes drama from the group meetings, which in most films would be snooze-fests.

120 BPM understands that conflict is not abuse and that comrades need not be friends. It immerses us in tangled lives of passion and anger on their own terms of tenderness, frustration, charisma, mess, pride, fury, pain, laughter, intimacy and bitterness.
