“Between the waves”: a life-and-death friendship between two inseparable girlfriends in a funny and sensitive film


revealed in Divine which won her the César 2017 for Best Supporting Actress, Déborah Lukumuena, already starring in Robustis found in between the waves, a funny and sensitive tragicomedy, in theaters Wednesday, March 16. A second film byAnais Volpe, overpowered and removed.

Margot and Alma do the four hundred blows in Paris. Never without each other, they crunch life to the fullest, share their outings, their dreams, their jokes and disappointments while rushing forward without looking back. Until bad news that will turn their lives upside down.

between the waves depicts two girlfriends in a modest and atmospheric Paris. Anaïs Volpé captures the last days of innocence of the two young girls who will switch from carelessness to gravity. The young director, also a screenwriter, films a duo of actresses in tune: Déborah Lukumuena and Souheila Yacoub are overflowing with unfailing ardour. The major asset of the film.

This energy transpires throughout the film. Learning about the city intersects with learning about life. An urbanity that translates into a mobile but stable and controlled camera that enhances the actresses in their environment. The street, the shops, a nightclub, a room… and lots of looks, laughter, repartee, encounters, love, and above all complicity. Margot and Alma are in a state of grace.

The subject and the actresses dominate a film that breathes the spirit of the times, in the tradition of Klapisch and, before him, François Truffaut. The parents are absent, the school never represented, life is elsewhere. In oneself perhaps, with the other surely. Margot and Alma are “sista”, inseparable “sisters”. Usually synonymous with love, passion forbetween the waves exalts that of friendship.
