France 2014; Director: David Oelhoffen. This gripping existential Western - North African style - sees Viggo Mortensen and Reda Kateb play two men battling to survive in 1950s Algeria. When a schoolteacher (born in Algeria but of Spanish descent) is ordered to escort a dissident into a regional police garrison, he is prompted to question where the loyalties truly lie. Stunning Atlas mountains scenery and a great soundtrack by Nick Cave.* Running time: 101 minutes, French-Arabic with subtitles*
