The First, the Last

France, Belgium 2016 | 98 minutes | French | English, Hebrew subtitles

Two grouchy bounty hunters (Albert Dupontel and Bouli Lanners) are hired to find a cell phone containing some very sensitive information. Their mission takes them to the countryside and eventually to a godforsaken town where they meet a couple on the run.

In his fourth film as director, Belgian actor Bouli Lanners spins a suspense story aided by excellent acting and plenty of absurd humor in what one critic described as "stylistically something like No Country for Old Men as if directed by Nuri Bilge Ceylan." The film was screened at the Panorama section of the Berlinale and was awarded the Europa Cinemas Label for Best European Film as well as the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury.
