After being subjected to a random violent attack, wealthy and handsome Parisian teenager Achille is sent to the seaside to recover from the trauma. Here he meets Brian, an angry young man who resents the world. The two young men bring out the worst in each other, and the unhealthy dynamic leads one of them down a dark and violent path. Social drama merges with horror, violence and erotica in François Valla’s VERSUS, an impressive debut which joins the tradition of hard-hitting and thought-provoking French coming-of-age movies.
François Valla (France) VERSUS is Valla’s first feature film.
