Movie Info

Adapted from a novel by J.B. Pick set in the period of the Thirty Years War, the story concerns two men who come to an as yet untouched valley (hence "last valley") seeking refuge from the religious conflicts of the period. One of them, Vogel (Omar Sharif), is that rarest of people in his time period, someone who is neither a peasant nor a nobleman. The other is a mercenary army leader (Michael Caine) encouraged by Vogel to winter over in the valley before resuming his participation in the overall armed conflict. The refuge they seek is disturbed, however, as the seeds of the warfare outside the valley are also present in it and romantic and religious tensions of all kinds develop among the local inhabitants.more

An interesting, thoughtful, unusual film -- one that in an allegorical sense has once again become relevant.

Audience Reviews for The Last Valley

A fine film about an historical time that is rarely remembered in any film. A must see for history buffs and those who appreciate old classic films. A morality play with dispair turning to hope.
