Fifth about The Seventh

BPM (Beats Per Minute) (120 Battements Par Minute)

BPM (Beats Per Minute): Robin Campillo, in this powerful drama, mixes many different elements: the story of one militant group, a general discussion of activist tactics, and a touching relationship. It is, above all, a film about the will to lead a normal life no matter what. While the pace falters at times, it’s for the most part a very rich experience. It’s a true ensemble, working at a great level throughout: Nahuel Pérez Biscayart creates a great, emotional performance (and with a very efficient physical transformation to boot); Arnaud Valois and Adèle Haenel also give powerful performances. The editing is mostly energetic, urgent, but there are lulls in that. The film convincingly recreates the time period potrayed.
