Le Dernier Combat (French pronunciation: [lə dɛʁnje kɔ̃ba], The Last Battle), released in 1983, is a French film, filmed in black and white, and with virtually no dialogue. It is the first feature film made by Luc Besson and Jean Reno's first leading role. The film is a dark vision of post-apocalyptic survival.
The plot explores the devastation of civilization and issues of brutality, hostility and isolation. Pierre Jolivet stars as the main character (identified only as "The Man" in the end credits) who is menaced by "The Brute" (played by Jean Reno) on his journey through a world filled by people rendered nearly mute by some unknown incident.
They live in a world of improvised weapons and armour, fighting for survival. A world of rivalry and punishment rather than cooperation
Besson served as writer, producer and director for the movie. The entire picture is filmed in black and white and has received cult status for having virtually no dialog. It is also the first of many collaborations between Luc Besson, Eric Serra and Jean Reno.
