Dreaming, falling, starting over. Margot and Alma are two best friends holding on to the energy of their youth and their burning desire to conquer the world, until life gets in the way. But their ride-or-die friendship can get them through anything: they are inseparable, unstoppable.
In her debut feature, director Anaïs Volpé explores the ride-or-die friendship between two modern heroines bravely facing adversity, in a wild and deeply touching drama where the streets of Paris are lit by Good Time’s cinematographer Sean Price Williams.
“The Braves is about the joys of life, set against the backdrop of a tragedy… It's a story of female friendship that plays to a happy tune, a rare beast in cinema. It's unusual to see so much support between women on screen, even when the story veers towards rivalry territory. Volpé will be a new voice in cinema.”
Kaleem Aftab, CINE EUROPA
“Both lead performers bring a charismatic presence to The Braves. Yacoub is a match for the emotional demands of the role. A film that emerges as a fond remembrance of a cherished friendship.”
Allan Hunter, SCREEN
