Grand Prix Cannes IFF 2017. When you feel angry and oppose what politicians do, do not wait. Fight for your rights. A thrilling film about the power of youth and the birth of a passionate and fury of the opposition movement in the early 90s
In the movie, Campillo euphoria meets despair, and the accelerated heartbeat resembles the ticking counting down the clock. Because the race goes on with time: there is the early 1990s, the AIDS epidemic is harvesting in France with the silent agreement of the government and pharmaceutical concerns. The attempts to silence the silence around actions, marches and happenings are being stopped by activists from the Paris-based ACT UP. 120 heart beats are a passionate and fury portrait of a youth meeting death, racial, discussed political cinema and moving love story. It is also a collective portrait of a generation, probably the last one, which so passionately believed in the possibility of change and that politics must be practiced on the streets. The awarded Grand Prix by the cannes jury (headed by Pedro Almodóvar), the movie Campillo is back to the 90s: the director himself was an ACT UP activist and his partner died of AIDS.
The power of 120 heartbeats consists of a series of images - a metaphor. The starting point is a perfect scenario. However, the film owes its perfect shape to the talent of Campillo, which perfectly reflects the moods of both collective and individual heroes. Pedro Almodovar
