Synopsis Romeo and Juliet meet one night in a bar and they fall in love. Things go so well between them that they soon start living together and they have their first child, Adam. A life full of love and happiness brought to an abrupt halt on the day that Adam, who is not yet two years old, is diagnosed with cancer. La guerre est declarée is a portrayal of this war against cancer, from the desperation and anger to the happiness derived from the little victories, tackled with a sense of humour and frenzy. A compendium of different reactions and human feelings, exorcisms that demystify the disease without concealing the hardship of the almost exclusive dedication required. And, like all real war, the war of this story also leaves behind some ruins when it ends.
Director bio Before getting involved with film, Valérie Donzelli studied architecture. She started as an actress, working under directors such as Sandrine Veysset and Agnès Varda to critical acclaim, receiving awards such as the Prix Michel Simon. After directing a short film in 2007 (Il fait beau dans la plus belle ville du monde), she had her feature debut in 2010, La Reine des pommes. In 2011 she acted under Benjamin Biolay in Pourquoi tu pleures?, which closed the Critics' Week at Cannes, a series inaugurated by her second feature, La guerre est déclarée, where she also plays a leading role.
