Movie Info

Arnaud (Kévin Azaïs), facing an uncertain future and a dearth of choices in a small French coastal town, meets and falls for the apocalyptic-minded Madeleine (Adèle Haenel), who joins an army boot camp to learn military and survival skills to prepare for the upcoming environmental collapse. Intrigued and excited by Madeleine's wild ideas, Arnaud signs up for the boot camp himself. They soon realize that the boot camp is harder than they'd imagined, but the experience nonetheless cements them together as the couple continues to explore their young love. (C) Strand

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (16) | Fresh (26) | Rotten (6)

  • Love at First Fight is overflowing with relentlessly acerbic humor that shapes the way the film's two young protagonists contend with not just each other, but also with the uncertainties of the world they're emerging into as adults.

  • [The film] doesn't live up to its promise... [but] it's an intriguingly off-kilter relationship drama and the two leads are persuasive.

  • The eerie emptiness of the northern countryside, evacuated after a forest fire, is a little like that evoked by Bruno Dumont. Cailley is a talent to watch.

  • Adèle Haenel's ingenue allure elevates Thomas Cailley's sweet-natured survivalist romance.

    Jun 18, 2015 | Rating: 4/5
  • Director Thomas Cailley conjures up a vivid, unusual world, offering a playful reversal of usual gender roles.
