    A slow, beautiful dream. No need to cut a shot when you've set it up so perfectly that the action flows in and out of the one you've got.

    Also, THE ENDING.

    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. 4 years 11 months ago
