Gérard Depardieu is lost in the forest. He’s hungry. He growls. Then he hallucinates and freaks out. So do we!


The End is a gripping arthouse puzzler in which Depardieu shines. Nicloux's gradually mounting tension will leave you feeling shaken and thoroughly unsettled.” Culture Fix

There’s no doubt about it: the work of Guillaume Nicloux (Valley of LoveThe Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq, Temps 0 jury award winner in 2014) is magical, full of incredible feats that, in anyone else’s hands, would have been disastrous. Here, Depardieu is almost always solo, a (dead?) body in nature, screaming and moaning in a ghostly ramble where humour morphs oh-so-quietly into discomfort, à la Lynch. An experience that’s a must-see on the big screen. (Julien Fonfrède)

« À eux deux, (Gérard Depardieu et Guillaume Nicloux) tissent, comme on l'a rarement fait à l'écran, l'étoffe des rêves. » Le monde

« Cette balade de perdition est évidemment incarnée ô combien par Depardieu, qui est non seulement un corps et une voix, mais aussi un film, un paysage, une histoire, un morceau d’humanité à lui tout seul. » Les inrockuptibles
