The Last Battle 
Director Luc Besson's (THE FIFTH ELEMENT, LEON: THE PROFESSIONAL) first feature tells the tale of a bleak post-nuclear war world where survival is a day-to-day struggle. One man (known only as The Man) struggles to build an airplane so that he can fly about in search of a mate. His goal is complicated by the fierce Brute (Jean Reno)-- but with help from a mad old scientist, The Man may eventually rise above his oppressive surroundings to find true love. Shot in black and white, with no dialogue to speak of, this unusual work won numerous French Film Awards.
