Event description

Description

David Oelhoffen
1h 41min
Drama, War, Western
PG-13
Film in French with English subtitles

Based on Albert Camus' short story "L'Hôte", Far From Men tells the story of an isolated schoolteacher living in 1954 Algeria forced to escort Mohamed, a villager accused of murdering his cousin, to a jail in a neighboring town. The movie explores the relationship between the two men in the context of decolonization and the nationalist struggle between the French and the Algerians. The film moves away from the mystery maintained in the original story, and instead adds significant detail to the characters' lives, motives and underlying historical forces.
