Roschdy Zem (The Innocent) stars as the legendary swordsman Clément Lacaze, caught up in an illegal fencing bout between his nephew and a more experienced army colonel. Doria Tiller (The Origin of Evil) plays women’s rights activist Marie-Rose Astié, who is attempting to manipulate the conventions of duelling to bring attention to her own cause. When Clément and Marie-Rose band together, they must defend so much more than outdated notions of honour. The Edge of the Blade compellingly weaves drama, romance and duels for an edge-of-your-seat experience where every sword clash heralds change.
