Winner “BEST FILM” and “BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR” at two international film festivals.
“Bristling with emotional intensity, this is far superior to earlier AIDS-related dramas such as … Philadelphia.”
— Thomas Dawson, BBC
“A fast-moving, engrossing multiple-character drama that brings the AIDS crisis of the 1980s into laser focus.”
— Deborah Young, VARIETY
“This is the epidemic from love's point of view, a story as much about how the disease can ravage the heart as it does the body. It is also Téchiné's best film since 1998's superb “Alice et Martin,” and 1994's even better “Wild Reeds.”
— Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
