Theo and Hugo

It is a borderline French gay porn and indie film set in Paris and was released in 2016. The scene starts in a club where orgies are held. Theo and Hugo met, had sex and then decided to go out on a stroll in the streets of Paris at dawn. The streets are mostly empty. They rode a bike, bought some kebal from a store that opened early, went to a park to talk more. I can't remember whether Theo was the top during the sex act, but the top guy decided to penetrate the bottom with a condom (they refer to it as a rubber).

The conversation turned into a heated argument because the bottom is apparently HIV positive but is taking meds regularly. The bottom guy encouraged the top guy to immediately visit a hospital after calling the AIDS hotline. They proceeded to the hospital one at a time. Eventually they meet there, and got advised from the nurse. This is where the education part about HIV happened. Apparently, if they take some pills within 24 hours (and continued it until the 28th day), the risk of being infected with the AIDS virus will be gone. They were advised to go back to the hospital 4 days after to have HIV tests.

After going to the hospital, they decided to go to the top's apartment, riding the 1st metro train for the day and chitchatting with an elderly rider. Upon reaching the apartment (which he refer to as a maid's chamber), a hot scene was shown where the bottom really appreciated the top's asset. Eventually they decided to visit the other guy's apartment.

This film reminds me of the 2008 Pinoy movie "Day Break" starring Coco Martin, wherein there are only 2 actors in the entire movie and the movie's settings is just within 24 hours. The film is mostly dialogue's between the two characters. In Theo and Hugo, it's about meeting a potential boyfriend -- how it all starts. Sometimes, love can really happen in weird places. Sometimes, all it takes is eye contact. Towards the end of the movie, I believe it was Theo who sums up a gay relationship -- where it starts, where it's headed, how long it might take (same 20 years), and eventually breaks up. What's important is how the two parties enjoy their time together.

I love this film.
