Far West (Le Far West) is a 1973 Belgian-French comedy film directed by Jacques Brel. It was entered into the 1973 Cannes Film Festival. This was Brel's ninth feature film, and his second directorial effort. The film co-starred Gabriel Jabbour, Danielle Evenou, and Arlette Lindon. The film was released 15 May 1973.

The film was co-written by Paul Andréota and Brel. As of 2008, the film has the dubious honor of a 4.0/10 rating on IMDb. The story concerns a group of drop-outs who decide to create a new “far west” in a abandoned mine, where, one day, they find gold.
