Beau Travail, DVD


Director Claire Denis' intensely physical study of tensions within a platoon of legionnaires stationed in North Africa.

Fearing for his position within the group, Sergeant-Major Galoup (Denis Lavant) is growing increasingly jealous of the popular new recruit Sentain (Grégoire Colin) and decides to bring about his downfall.

Eventually, when the platoon have left on a series of exercises, Galoup manages to provoke Sentain into a direct confrontation, the two of them coming face-to-face for the last time in an incredible sequence set against the harsh, rocky coastal landscape and the music of Benjamin Britten's 'Billy Budd'.
