David Oelhoffen adapts Albert Camus’ 1957 short story, ‘The Guest’ (L’Hôte’), which depicts a school teacher’s attempt to remain on the sidelines during the Algerian War after receiving unwanted responsibility for a prisoner.  Viggo Mortensen, who picked up a best actor Oscar nomination for his performance in ‘Eastern Promises’, plays the lead.  It’s Oelhoffen’s sophomore feature after ‘In Your Wake’ seven years ago.
