Les Combattants - Preview

Les Combattants

Preview by Jack Foley

BETWEEN his friends and the family business, Arnaud’s summer looks set to be a peaceful one in his dead-end seaside town.

Peaceful, that is, until he runs into a fight with Madeleine – a hot-tempered survival fanatic who throws him to the ground while, in a more romantic sense, sweeping him off his feet.

Convinced that an apocalypse is fast approaching, Madeleine is focussed on honing her skills at an army boot camp and Arnaud, intrigued by her wild ideas and surly demeanour, decides to sign up with her. As they learn to fend for themselves, their fractious relationship begins to bloom until their private world in the wilderness comes under a very dangerous threat.

A smart, vivacious subversion of romantic comedy norms and featuring a sparkling onscreen chemistry between its two young leads, French filmmaker Thomas Cailley’s remarkable debut feature took the top prize at Directors’ Fortnight during Cannes 2014.

Les Combattants is released on DVD on Monday, August 10, 2015.
