Boyd van Hoeij, the talented reviewer of, sums up Les Témoins extremely well: 'This multi-layered story set in the 1980s focuses on the contrasts between illness and health, sex and romance, friendship and companionship and the fluidity of all these categories in the face of the capriciousness of both life and the humans who get to live it to tell the tale...

More importantly, it is not strictly about AIDS but "just" about human beings trying to get on with life for however long it may last and -- if they are lucky -- bear witness to the strength and complexity of the human spirit.'
