The Last Battle (Le Dernier Combat) [Blu-ray] 
I would refer you to the excellent review by "Jay M "jay_mc" but my feelings about this film are rather more mixed.
Luc Besson certainly creates an apocalyptic vision of a nuclear wasteland, with the air so polluted the few isolated remaining people are unable to speak any longer, there is a moving scene where "Man" Pierre Jolivet and "The doctor" try to speak by breathing oxygen.
The film can be interpreted many ways, for example as either the pointless existence of survivors following a nuclear holocaust, an indication of the way civilisation is progressing with people increasingly isolated by technology (computers etc), and alternatively (although never in Besson's thoughts) the outcome of global warming.
I do not see this as a silent film (the techniques are entirely different) and the lack of dialogue merely created a barrier between me and the characters and detracted from the impact of the film.
An extremely unusual and significant but somewhat dated film, therefore I would suggest renting instead of buying.
