Trivia

The original title, which translates literally as "Théo and Hugo in the Same Boat", is a reference to Jacques Rivette's Celine and Julie Go Boating (1974). The name of the character Théo is also an homage to Agnès Varda's Cleo from 5 to 7 (1962), which is told almost in real time like this film. See more »

User Reviews

 
A tender X-rated romance
17 November 2017 | by palovyperSee all my reviews

The title characters in "Théo et Hugo dans le même bateau" meet in a dark room and connect instantly. Then they stroll the streets of early morning Paris together. From its raunchy, explicit beginning, this charming film evolves into a sweet and somber romance, echoing of Richard Linklater's "Before Sunrise"-trilogy. Consequently, Théo's and Hugo's story comes across an unforgettable and ultimately very charming affair.
