Wednesday 31st August 7pm / Cinema


George is an aging film star in decay. Aïssa, a semi-pro wrestler who earns a living as a security officer, has a hard time handling her love life. When George’s right-arm man and only friend takes a leave of absence for several weeks, Aïssa is immediately appointed as his replacement.

Between this pragmatic young lady bodyguard and our disenchanted renowned actor, a singular bond begins to take root. Despite their individual differences, life has shaped them in ways more similar than they thought.


Language: French (with English subtitles)

Were trying some new things out at the Playhouse. Over the next few weeks well be offering a wider range of films in our programme, presenting a range of cinema from all over the world alongside our popular mainstream film screenings. 


We know that to be an adventurous cinemagoer that price is a big factor, so were making selected films available in the programme at the special price of just £2 per ticket! 


Were doing this because we want you to experience new things and to join us on our journey through film.
