The ‘Mystery Volleyball’ event and film are part of the ‘You’re only as old as you move’ campaign conceived by Saatchi & Saatchi, Switzerland on behalf of body pain expert, Voltaren, a GSK Consumer Healthcare brand. The campaign aims to challenge prejudices, that people have around pain and movement, with a compelling story featuring two Brazilian women in their 50s, Carla Cury (56) and Vania Verneck (53), performing a series of age-defying beach volleyball games facing much younger opponents.

The campaign brings to life the core purpose of Voltaren - whatever your age, and despite muscle or joint pain, you can still experience the joy of movement. Both protagonists have been playing volleyball for around 40 years and regularly experience body pain, which they treat with Voltaren (Cataflam PRO in Brazil). The casting process was integral to the film, in finding real women who regularly rely on Voltaren to be able to play Volleyball at a high level.
