Plot & Details
A man takes a last chance on love in this romance blended with science fiction. An unnamed calamity leads to global war, massive natural disasters and plagues that have decimated the world's population. Robinson Laborde (Mathieu Amalric) has lost his arm to a virus that has claimed millions and is in failing health, and while he's already married to Chloe (Karin Viard), after meeting a beautiful Spanish woman named Laetitia (Omahyra Mota) he falls hopelessly in love. Robinson leaves Chloe and sets out to find Laetitia and win her heart, but finding her is no simple task, and he finds himself traveling across the wreckage of what was once Europe, making his way across the continent only to end up in bomb-stricken Paris. As he travels, Robinson is faced with many opportunities for romantic adventures, in particular with the beautiful but cryptic Iris (Clotilde Hesme) and Ombeline (Catherine Frot) an attractive older woman who was once involved with his father; he also attracts the attentions of Theo (Sergi Lopez), an old friend who sings with the opera. Les Derniers Jours Du Monde (aka Happy End or This Is The End; the title literally translates as "Last Days Of The World") was an official selection at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival.
