Thomas Cailley’s “Love at First Fight” (“Les Combattants”) screened at this year’s Cannes Film Festival as a part of the Director’s Fortnight segment, and is now up for the Camera D’Or Award, which is bestowed upon the festival’s best first film. Indiewire was lucky enough to receive this first exclusive trailer for the comedy.
From the film’s charmingly French synopsis: “Between his friends and the family business, Arnaud’s summer looks set to be a peaceful one. Peaceful until he runs into Madeleine, as beautiful as she is brusque, a concrete block of tensed muscles and doomsday prophecies. He expects nothing; she prepares for the worst. He takes things as they come, likes a good laugh. She fights, runs, swims, pushes herself to the limit. Given she hasn’t asked him for anything, just how far will he go along with her? It’s a love story. Or a story of survival. Or both.”
