To the Ends of the World

France, China, Belgium 2018 | 103 minutes | French | Hebrew, English subtitles

It is 1945 and Viet Minh soldiers are fighting against the French to liberate Vietnam. It is a visceral, bewildering, and blood-drenched war. French soldier Robert Tassen survives a horrible massacre where he witnesses his brother’s execution. Determined to take revenge on the Vietnamese commander responsible, he joins a French unit stationed in the heart of the jungle. But when he meets a local girl, seeds of doubt jeopardize his plans. Esteemed French director Guillaume Nicloux returns to Cannes this year with a haunting drama that is a work of both cinematographic perfection and directional artistry featuring Gaspard Ulliel in the lead and Gérard Depardieu in a surprising performance.
