LE COMBAT DES REINES
Switzerland / 1995 / 86'
In the Swiss mountains the prize cows, called queens, fight each other in relentness battles, which arouse great interest among the local population who hold the owners of the winners in great esteem. This is the story of Julie, Genevan by adoption, who decides to return to her native village to beat Prospère Carron in the fight of the “queens”, which her father never managed to do. Julie is obstinate and neither Hervès pleas, nor the growing love for Jean-Louis, make her change her mind. Prospère Carron pesters her financially and Julie decides to buy a possible “queen” in Italy and smuggle it into Switzerland and prepare it for the annual fight of the queens in Martigny.
