French masked wrestlers and film noir ... it's a crazy sounding combination but it landed David Perrault's debut feature Our Heroes Died Tonight
(Nos Heros Sont Mort Ce Soir
) a slot in Cannes and with the French release approaching the full trailer for what promises to be a sumptuous oddity has arrived online.
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 trailer below!
