Exclusive | Check out the trailer for new gay-themed film Théo and Hugo (NSFW)

2016-08-17
Gay-themed film Théo and Hugo is taking a look at how instant connections can create lasting imprints in their latest film, and you can check out the trailer here, exclusively. The new film from French filmmakers Olivier Ducastel and Jaques Martineau, which is set to be released in the UK on September 9, follows two men who meet on a night out in Paris. According to the film's synopsis:
Wanting to know more about each other, they leave the club and drift down the deserted streets of nocturnal Paris. Suddenly they find themselves confronted by a sense of reality that wipes out their freedom and lends each step an existential helplessness. Do they want to know more about each other? Will their trust be rewarded? What are their expectations?
While the film is a little raunchy, we can expect a more "real" depiction of sex from Théo and Hugo, according to co-director Jaques Martineau: "We were telling a real story and we were all focused on that so it made filming the sex as natural as we’d imagined it when we conceived the project. "It’s not just a scene of sexual intercourse and the demands of the story meant that the “performance” of filming actors with erections faded into the background (even if it’s not the same as filming a family meal!). We had to believe in these two people falling in love and the passionate surge of desire." Co-director Olivier Ducastel adds: "I wanted a film about the start of a love story. All our films are about love but I wanted to go back to the source."
