A film by Bouli Lanners

Cast: Albert Dupontel, Max von Sydow, Michael Lonsdale, Suzanne Clément, Bouli Lanners

English: The first one the last one.

In an waste windy plain, Cochise and Gilou, two inseparable bounty hunters are looking for a stolen phone who has sensitive content. Their path will cross  Esther and Willy, a couple on the run, and if it was the end of the world.  In this small lost city where everyone is a failure, will they find human nature at its best? Those maybe the last men, but there are not as deferents that the first one.

So even if this film is a little off beat a poetic force lights up. It is a slow thriller on a burner with grippy scenery, rainy with something a small window of light like if it was hope but then darkness arrives again. The wide shots of the country of Beauce, cleverly interweaving rainy plains and raw infrastructure of the suburbs  filmed in wide Scope, like a magnificent paintings. Bouli Lanners delivers to us a beautiful marginal ode those two bounty hunter will cross path with a deer, a couple running away, 4 guys with guns, a mummy in a warehouse,and 2 undertaker. This spiritual equation will rub you the strange way where the fear of the end of the world will turn into a chase of biblical proportion. I love the choice of Dupontel’s film it has played in those poetic kind a fable film that suits him just right, it fits him like a glove. Terrific performance by the actors. Phillipe Reboot plays a modern jesus and Mannerist. Here is a modern western tale of jesus well sort of you decide.
