Synopsis

Denis Lavant stars as Galoup, a sergeant-major whose position and power are threatened when the bravery and heroism of new recruit Sentain attracts the attention of the platoon's commandant. Enraged, Galoup plots Sentain's downfall, a doomed course of action that leads to his own undoing. Claire Denis' Beau Travail is a stunning combination of literature, music, poetry and dance that explores the near mythical world of the French Foreign Legion.
