There is no shortage of serious movies hitting the festival circuit this fall, but only one of them boasts the distinction of being based on the short story "L'Hôte" by Albert Camus. That's right, the philosopher's work is behind the latest from writer/director David Oelhoeffen, and with "Far From Men" hitting both Venice and TIFF in the next couple of weeks, two new clips are here to go with the trailer that landed a week ago.

Far From Men, Viggo Mortensen

There is no shortage of serious movies hitting the festival circuit this fall, but only one of them boasts the distinction of being based on the short story "L'Hôte" by Albert Camus. That's right, the philosopher's work is behind the latest from writer/director David Oelhoeffen, and with "Far From Men" hitting both Venice and TIFF in the next couple of weeks, two new clips are here to go with the trailer that landed a week ago.

Viggo Mortensen and Reda Kateb lead this drama, which follows a small town teacher and a dissident who are forced to go on the run together in the midst of the Algerian War. The film is in French and Arabic, and while these clips don't have subtitles, they give a pretty good taste of the atmosphere of the movie. Keep your ears open too, because that score is by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, no slouches when it comes to soundtracks.

There's currently no U.S. distribution for "Far From Men," but we hope to have a review of this one soon. Watch below.
