La ligne brisée, le dépassement de soi

In Le dépassement de soi, two actors face the incredible challenge of intensive training to become credible boxers in order to film the movie La ligne brisée. We discover just how good an athlete you have to be to become a professional boxer, how filming boxing matches where a story is being told makes it all the more complex and how a writer can immerse herself into the world of boxing. To create a character, it is said that actors must give of themselves, but to embody boxers as believable as Guillaume Lemay-Thivierge and David Boutin are, they push themselves far beyond their own limits.
