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.
This is like a 90 minute Madonna video.
If you love the ending of this movie, in all of it's absurd glory, do yourself a favor and go see Holy Motors
