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

Angers, France, 1975. He studied screenwriting at La Fémis, and directed the short films Sophia (06), Adieu créature (09) and No hablo american (13). Nos héros sont morts ce soir is his first feature length film.
