It was just yesterday that we were blown away by the first images from Our Heroes Are Dead Tonight
(Nos Heros Sont Morts Ce Soir
), the debut feature from David Perrault fusing masked wrestling with film noir. And now we have a first clip from the Cannes selected film which more than lives up to the promise of those images.
France in the early 60s. Simon, a wrestler, wears a white mask. In the
ring, he is known as "The Specter". He suggests to his friend Victor
who has just returned from combat to be his adversary in the ring and
wear a black mask, and be known as "The Slaughterer of Belleville".
But for Victor, still shaken from his experience in combat, this is too
much : for once in his life, he would like to be the good guy, the one
people cheer on. Simon then suggests they switch masks. But it proves
less easy to fool the rest of wrestling crowd...
Take a look at the clip below.
