Synopsis: Viggo Mortensen stars in this existential western adapted from an Albert Camus' short story. Set in Algeria in the fifties, Mortensen is charged with escorting a suspected murderer across the Atlas mountains. Music by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.
3 stars (Good Enough) Most rate it high but the plot's weak - the Battle of Algiers is vastly better. This new slow western-style movie was made in a Moroccan desert not as empty as it seemed - with plantations and dense sheep tracks. But Viggo was good and it's worth seeing~Sandy
