VENICE REPORT: FAR FROM MEN


David Oelhoffen's Far from Men, an adaptation of Albert Camus' The Guest, has attracted some excellent reviews in Venice, where it's competing for the Golden Lion. Viggo Mortensen and Reda Kateb star in the Algerian Western, which could be a likely contender for awards when Alexandre Desplat's jury makes their choices. Here are reviews from Jessica Kiang at The Playlist, John Bleasdale at CineVue, Peter Debruge at Variety and Boyd van Hoeij at The Hollywood Reporter.
