Paris 05:59: Theo & Hugo is a naturalistic real-time romance that rewards audiences with intimacy and a sweet character-driven romance so long as squeamish moviegoers can enjoy/endure the opening hardcore sex sequence. Definitely worth a look.

A bounty of cinematic suppositions
March 17, 2017
An unexpectedly moving and even sweet movie about budding relationships, personal responsibility, and frank honesty.
March 3, 2017
Directing team Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau masterfully sustain a sense of real-time, improvised spontaneity as they track Hugo and Theo (Francois Nambot and Geoffrey Couet) for a strict, suspenseful 97 minutes.
February 28, 2017
Theo and Hugo see something in one another that they haven't seen in anyone else, and Theo and Hugo ebulliently attempts to explore that kind of queer magnetism.
February 3, 2017
A remarkably empathetic, big-hearted and love-struck film
January 27, 2017
The men's bodies glow for each other, their faces fascinated by everything they see except what's going on around them, like a man-on-man La La Land.
January 27, 2017
Like our heroes, you spend the film wondering if this is a standard hook-up or something special. And that at least makes "Paris 05:59" special.
January 27, 2017
Paris 05:59 conjures a world and a moment in time, and it does so with an understated skill throughout.
January 26, 2017
Light on plot yet heavy on chemistry, "Paris 05:59" is at times a little precious. But the two leads are so believably besotted that their occasional immaturity doesn't rankle.
January 26, 2017
The... character-driven and satisfying Paris 05:59 is a tight 90 minutes, mostly in very long takes with largely unobtrusive editing.
January 25, 2017
Medical facts, along with the delights of Paris particulars - the Canal Saint-Martin in the dead hours, the faces of early-morning Mtro riders - give the film ballast when Tho and Hugo's getting-to-know-you patter grows too precious.
January 20, 2017
One of the best gay films ever made.
January 18, 2017
Very few films accept the contradicting velocities of gay desire, and present them in such blunt yet graceful fashion, the way Paris 05:59 does.
December 28, 2016
Playing out in real time, Theo and Hugo offers a warm, frank, unexpectedly romantic view of relationships today.
December 17, 2016
It feels like both an entire relationship and just the beginning.
December 9, 2016
There are still too few films out there willing to bring sex and love together with this kind of honesty. Theo And Hugo is a rare treat.
October 10, 2016
The lead actors, Geoffrey Cout (as Theo) and Franois Nambot (Hugo), deliver performances of subtlety and range.
September 11, 2016
The sweetly romantic connection that builds once all the sweaty, neon-lit thrusting has subsided has an unexpected charm.
September 9, 2016
It's downhill after the first half.
