Inspired by Herman Melville's Billy Budd, Claire Denis's Beau Travail is a stunning combination of literature, music, poetry and dance that explores the near-mythical world of the French Foreign Legion.

Denis Lavant stars as Galoup, a sergeant-major whose position and power are threatened when the bravery and heroism of new recruit Sentain attracts the attention of the platoon's commandant.

Enraged, Galoup plots Sentain's downfall, a doomed course of action that leads to his own undoing.

Mesmerizing and odd

Mon, 11 May 2015 | Review by: Michael S

One of the best films by one of the greatest woman directors. Not who you might expect to make a film about the French Foreign Legion, but Denis is no ordinary director. In a hear haze, the men exercise in a form resembling dance, practice, squabble, and deal with a peculiar, runty little officer. It's oddly dreamy, yet holds your attention throughout
