Buzz: A preem at Locarno hasn’t brought about glowing reviews for this dystopian flick with the two plus hour run time. I’m not sure if this is an overly ambitious project or just a difficult sell, but I’ll rally behind this one because I need something less grim to work with my appreciation of Children of Men.
The Gist: A global apocalypse is about to destroy all mankind. In a final quest, Robinson (Mathieu Amalric) sets out on a journey from France to Spain, searching for Laetitia, the woman he once loved, even if it means heading back to the centre of the danger zone. But as the world is turning upside down, most people – through their blind panic – have decided to simply enjoy their last days on the planet abandoning themselves to a few final moments of pleasure and lust.
