  Abstract:  The Last Day on Earth from Feu follet to Oslo, August 31st. This paper focuses on a very relevant and recent example of an accomplished rewriting (Oslo, August 31st by Joachim Trier) of Pierre Drieu La Rochelle’s Le Feu Follet, also compared with a more classic one, Louis Malle’s Le Feu follet from 1963, stressing upon a few significant differences that make Trier’s version a more dramatic, intriguing and powerful than Malle’s film, also being more accurate and closer to La Rochelle’s original story. Trier’s Oslo, August 31st is not only a more faithful and dramatic version, but is also an impressive achievement: his film reveals the present as a depressing reality (a psycho-apocalypse similar to Lars von Trier’s Melancholia, but reversing the relation between the self and the world).

Keywords: literary adaptation, re-writing, impossible gaze, psycho-apocalypse
