Rose is hired as a supermarket cashier after spending 5 years in prison. Separated from her son Mickaël, happy in his foster home, she wants to get closer to him by sharing his exclusive passion: wrestling.
Rose convinces her co-workers to form a wrestling team. Wrestler Richard the Lionheart, now an old grumpy gymnasium guard, unwillingly becomes their coach … The fun is only starting!!!
“…the jokes unwind so fast that we hardly have any time to rest from one laugh to another”(Sarah Parsisson)
Nathalie Baye, Isabelle Nanty, Marilou Berry, Audrey Fleurot, Corinne Masiero and André Dussollier are cast in unexpected, hilarious, entertaining roles. There is a real bond between the actors who trained together intensively for 10 hours a week during 3 months!
Sometimes tender and sometimes hilarious, Jean-Marc Rudnicki’s film successfully blends realism and fantasy in the lives of four cashiers to achieve a savoury entertainment piece.
“It’s delirious, cheeky, well-crafted (…) and the actors are really playing their hearts out!” (Gwénola Trouillard)
