Robinson, appropriately named as we will soon discover, is on vacation in Biarritz with his wife. What follows is the story behind the loss of his arm, a story that becomes increasingly bizarre and eventually apocalyptic, leading us down a narrative path of labyrinthine complexity. The resulting film is an extraordinary feat of imagination and daring, set against the backdrop of a world on the verge of destruction. Written by Anonymous

Ending the world with a bang !
17 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

The latest in the never ending series of apocalyptic films, "Les derniers jours du monde", follows Robinson (Mathieu Amalric) through his journey from the french resort of Biarritz to Spain, when the world as we know it is coming to an end. The year before the apocalypse, he meets a beautiful woman (Omahyra Mota) and a passion starts. When she suddenly disappears, he tries to find her. But if people die, and bombs explode, the urge to live is stronger than ever. How would we react if our world crumbled and our social conventions with it ? This film answers in a quite unusual way. Rarely do we see in French cinema a plot involving end of the world action sequences. Here, they are coupled with character study, a realistic love story, great performances from Mathieu Amalric, but also Catherine Frot, and Sergi Lopez. No over the top CGI here, just overwhelming sequences and a very involving experience. Adapted from the eponymous novel by Dominique Noguez, this is by far the strongest film by the Larrieu brothers. Don't miss it !
