    This is like a 90 minute Madonna video. 5 years 2 months ago

    A beautifully shot drama, with masterful sound design. Beau travail looks into the life of a platoon of legionnaires stationed in North Africa. The film may move at a slow pace and have little dialogue, but these criticisms are completely overshadowed by its compelling visuals and intriguing ending. A must watch. 6 years 8 months ago

    If you love the ending of this movie, in all of it's absurd glory, do yourself a favor and go see Holy Motors 7 years 3 months ago
