Film Website



It looks like Arnaud is going to have a peaceful summer: hanging out with his mates and working in the family firm. Then he meets Madeleine, a young woman, beautiful and hard as nails, a concrete block of tense muscles and prophecies of doom. Arnaud has no great expectations of life, Madeleine is preparing herself for the Day of Judgement. He takes things easy, she fights, runs, swims and pushes herself to the limit. Arnaud is overwhelmed and enraptured by this human tornado – and agrees to a two-week boot camp. Love at First Fight is a love story. Or a story of survival. Or both.
