Les Combattants (2014)

Romantic comedy-drama. Adèle Haenel and Kévin Azaïs star in French writer-director Thomas Cailley's feature debut. Shortly after the death of his father, the shy and easy-going Arnaud Labrède meets Madeleine Beaulieu on the seafront of their small home town. It's an unconventional first encounter; they're paired by army recruiters in a hand-to-hand fight, which she wins, easily. They meet again when Arnaud and his older brother Manu, who now runs the family carpentry business, take on a job for Madeleine's parents. After a prickly start, Madeleine and Arnaud begin to spend time together. She shares her belief that civilisation is about to end, and anyone who wants to survive needs to ready themselves. Despite scepticism at her pessimistic outlook, Arnaud is drawn to this intense woman and they start to date. But there's a dramatic outcome when he joins her on an intensive army training course.
