Theo And Hugo
In ‘Theo and Hugo’ Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau (‘Drôle de Félix’, ‘Born in 68’) deliver their most ambitious film yet, displaying a consummate sensitivity in bringing us closer to two men as they strive for intimacy in spite of being stalled by their insecurity. Théo and Hugo encounter each other’s bodies one night in a Paris sex club. Wanting to know more about each other, they leave the club and drift down the deserted streets of nocturnal Paris.
Suddenly they find themselves confronted by a sense of reality that wipes out their freedom and lends each step an existential helplessness. Do they want to know more about each other? Will their trust be rewarded? What are their expectations?
