Here’s a film that’s been on my radar for some time now. Directed by Thomas Cailley and written by Cailley and Claude Le Pape, Les Combattants was screened at last years Cannes Film Festival, winning the prestigious FIPRESCI Prize in the Parallel Section.
The French comedy / drama involves Arnaud, a youngster with his sights set on a peaceful Summer holiday. Then he meets Madaleine, a tough, beautiful girl with a personal mission for self-improvement that drags him along for the ride.
Love at First Fight / Les Combattants is released in the UK on 19th June
