The Last Battle

This quirky, B/W post-apocalypse flick from 1983 is director Luc Besson’s (The Fifth Element) first film…and it’s a weird one. It focus’ on the bizarre, mute denizens of a deserted city and their strange ‘comings and goings’. The beautifully composed B/W cinematography certainly adds to the art-house mood while the jazz lounge/80’s porn music score fends off any real feeling of menace or consequence. I can’t really recommend this one to the public at large, but true cinephiles may find it intriguing. And don’t be scared off because it’s a French film…there’s literally only two words of dialogue.
