Chevalier was a movie that whipped up a storm at the 2015 London Film Festival and now it is about to hit the big screen.



Chevalier won the Best Film Award at the LFF last year and marks the return of Athina Rachel Tsangari to the director's chair.

This is the third live action feature film of Tsangari's career to date and comes after The Slow Business of Going and Attenberg. But it is the first film from her since the release of documentary Venice 70: Future Reloaded back in 2012 - it is good to see her back.

As well as being in the director's chair, Tsangari has teamed up with Efthymis Filippou to pen the film's screenplay.

In the middle of the Aegean Sea, on a luxury yacht, six men on a fishing trip decide to play a game. During this game, things will be compared. Things will be measured. Songs will be butchered, and blood will be tested.

Friends will become rivals, and rivals will become hungry. But at the end of the voyage when the game is over, the man who wins will be the best man. And he will wear upon his littlest finger the victorious signet ring: the 'Chevalier'.

July is a great month for indie films and Chevalier looks set to be one that's not to be missed, if you are a fan of this genre.

Chevalier is released 22nd July.
