Paris 05:59: Théo & Hugo Geregisseerd door Olivier Ducastel, Jacques Martineau
The film is kept buoyant by the giddy attraction between the leads, but co-directors Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau are also artful economizers, folding a Syrian immigrant, a lonely old woman, and tales of gay life in the country and the city into what’s fundamentally a sweet, conventional romance (a relationship that begins with sex and involves a health scare cannot be shocking to college-educated Americans).

The film conjures a world and a moment in time, and it does so with an understated skill throughout. Enormous credit, though, must also go to the casting and performances of the two actors. Couet and Nambot are slender, nice- but not extraordinary-looking twentysomethings who are very believable in their roles, but most of all have a chemistry that makes you wonder how much of their romantic attraction is acting.

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. (One of the film’s loveliest tics is to keep catching Théo’s watching Hugo with a small, secretive smile, as if he couldn’t believe his luck.)
