Poster for Our Heroes Died Tonight

Black and white French neo-noir set in the criminal milieu of professional wrestling in the 1960s. Victor (Denis Ménochet, Inglourious Basterds), a gentle giant who turns to wrestling as a career, and friend Simon (Jean-Pierre Martins), forge a lucrative rivalry as big men in tights. A decision to switch masks, however, leads to dire consequences as the pair falls foul of match-riggers - and hitmen - and are caught in a spiral of mortal danger.
