Beau Travail

1999 Rated NR 1hr 30m

Director Claire Denis loosely adapted Herman Melville's Billy Budd and transferred the tale from the sea to the sparse landscape of East Africa's Djibouti. Sgt. Galoup (Denis Lavant), a French Foreign Legion officer, is intimidated by the arrival of a new recruit, Sentain (Gregoire Colin). When Galoup's commander, Forestier (Michel Subor), shows Sentain extreme favoritism, Galoup recklessly acts out on his irrational emotion.
