”Wrestlers” is an emotional and sexual odyssey to the essence of humanness. It is a surreal black comedy spiced up with visual jokes. In the film two athletes confront each other in the most passionate combat of their lives.

”Wrestlers” juxtaposes an intimate relationship with a competitive situation. The heroes balance between love and the pressure cast by the outside world. The film depicts a struggle both in the arena and in everyday life. It deals with the humane side clashing with instinctively pushing through primal urges to hunt and survive.
