Featuring an extraordinary performance from the multi-talented Viggo Mortensen and a superb original soundtrack from Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, Far From Men is a gripping drama of morality and friendship set during the Algerian War, against an unforgiving mountainous landscape.

The year is 1954, the war is beginning, and village schoolteacher Daru (Mortensen), a French ex-soldier, is caught in the crossfire. Born in Algeria but Spanish by lineage, he's a man out of time and place, perceived as alien by both locals and colonisers alike. So when he reluctantly agrees to escort a dissident (rising star Reda Kateb, A Prophet) to a regional police station to face trial for murder, a series of encounters and revelations force the question of where Daru’s loyalties truly lie.

Based on a story by Albert Camus, writer/director David Oelhoffen’s masterful, breathtakingly-shot drama bears all the hallmarks of a classic frontier western, yet carries strong contemporary resonances. Widely acclaimed at the recent Venice Film Festival where it premiered in Official Competition, Far From Men is grand, big-screen entertainment at its finest.
