Nos héros sont morts ce soir

de David Perrault


France, early 70s. Simon is a professional wrestler, who always wears a white mask. He convinces his friend Victor, who has just returned from Algeria, to be his opponent, wearing a black mask. But the harmony in the ring can’t hide the traumas of war that Victor has to bear, and that will put both of them in a tight spot. Minimalist and deliciously monochrome, Nos héros sont morts ce soir leads us to a sweaty, delirious terrain. 


David Perrault
