The First The last / Les Premiers les derniers (18)

thefirstElements of the Western and the gothic thriller unite in this darkly absurd foray set amidst the industrial ruins of a flatland vast enough to swallow men whole. Cochise and Gilou (director Bouli Lanners and Albert Dupontel), a pair of grizzled bounty hunters, have been hired by a wealthy stranger to obtain a phone that holds some critical information. The phone is in the possession of Esther and Willy, a homeless young couple. Whenever they turn the phone on, Cochise and Gilou can get a lead on their whereabouts. In this singular and deeply personal universe, everyone, including a craggy undertaker played by Max Von Sydow, seems uprooted, set adrift in his or her own way. Europa Cinemas Label winner Berlin Film Festival.
