French drama directed and adapted for the screen by Denis Dercourt (The Page Turner), starring Albert Dupontel as an injured equestrian rider who finds love with his insurance claim officer (Cécile de France).

Wheelchair-bound after an accident on a film set, equestrian stunt rider Marc (Dupontel) is battling with his insurance company to get what he consider a fair payout. The mounting pressure on his case officer, Florence (de France), fuels a conflict within her as she finds herself slowly falling for her client.
This drama stars Albert Dupontel as a horse trainer and stunt rider who is paralysed from the waist down after an accident on a film set.

Cecile De France plays a tightly chignoned insurance assessor, who years ago had aspirations to become a concert pianist, who’s trying to persuade him to accept a low-ball settlement. However, his manly mastery and hirsute dignity touch her heart and they fall in love, or at least have an affair, and she starts to rethink her life choices.

As the above might suggest, this is about as bourgeois and Gallic as a film can be without actually dressing the characters in Breton shirts and draping ropes of onions around their necks, but the actors are undeniably magnetic, the stunt work is duly impressive, and it all trots along at a very manageable pace.

Plus, there’s some great equine acting on hand from Othello, the supporting stallion, a chestnut beauty with eyes almost as soulful as Dupontel’s own.
