Top 200 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2023: #154. David Oelhoffen’s Les Derniers Hommes

Les Derniers Hommes

It’s been a fairly consistent film output for David Oelhoffen with not much waiting between projects at least with his first three features. His 2007 debut Nos retrouvailles premiered at the Critics’ Week in Cannes, and his 2014 film Far from Men was a huge sophomore film – winning three prizes at Venice. His fourth feature is a war film from the perspectives of the French and Japanese and is based on Alain Gandy’s autobiographical novel. Les Derniers Hommes and was produced by Galatée Films’ Jacques Perrin. Production took place in February of ’22 with Guido Caprino, Andrzej Chyra and Nuno Lopes toplining. Oelhoffen has his fifth in Le quatrieme mur on the way as well but we believe that he’ll have that one ready for ’24.

Gist: Chronicles the hellish journey of foreign soldiers who fought on behalf of the French in March 1945 as they struggled to make their way out of the jungle after being defeated by the Japanese army.

Release Date/Prediction: We can expect him to shore up in Venice once again.
