This film focuses on ex-Foreign Legion officer, Galoup, as he recalls his once glorious life, leading troops in the Gulf of Djibouti. His existence there was happy, strict and regimented, but the arrival of a promising young recruit, Sentain, plants the seeds of jealousy in Galoup's mind. He feels compelled to stop him from coming to the attention of the commandant who he admires, but who ignores him. Ultimately, his jealousy leads to the destruction of both Sentain and himself.

Slow and not eventful, but still a great pleasure to watch. Denis really captures the oppressive atmosphere in very interesting ways. I think the monologue is quite beautiful, elegant, quietly poetic.

Claire Denis gives us a beautiful, poetic film here, a meditation on masculinity and competition between men, which is skilfully built up to an inevitable tragic conclusion. Her eye for detail, and for composition is utterly masterful.

A slow and laboriously extended formalist, symbolist wank (and even literal, in terms of the half-naked male bodies constantly on display), wrapped around an insubstantial story. You may enjoy this if you enjoy the cinema of Marguerite Duras, by which Denis is heavily influenced. I don't.

Blah, blah, blah, work and travel with Foreign Legion, blah, discover the most exotic places, blah, blah, do some sports, more blah and suddenly it becomes a post-modern version of Triumph of the Will combined with the Star Wars Kid... right. Deep.

A man fondly recalls his time in Africa as a member of the French Foreign Legion. So good times as dudes do yoga in the desert, with plenty of shots of the bleak brown and blue African landscape, culminating in the most outrageous, greatest final scene/credits in movie history.

I know I'm very much in the minority but I just can't seem to really get into any of Claire Denis' films, at least among those I have seen. I just don't see her purported genius. Her films are always well-made and beautifully shot, with some truly great moments, but they never really engage me on a deeper emotional level. Beau Travail is no exception. I think I understood the film's intended subtext but it just doesn't convince emotionally or psychologically.

not really sure what denis is trying to do here. explore the rivalry and psyche of a jealous military man? juxtapose the overt masculinity of these soldiers against the more exotic nature of the country they're inhabiting? bore the tits off me? presumably she didn't intend the latter, but i didn't get much beyond that. add some empty narration and considerable tonal inconsistency, and it all adds up to a mess of meditative nothingness. only plus is some unusual and evocative sequences.

As Galoup's memory is recalled through melancholic voiceovers, Claire elliptically constructs an entire narrative dedicated to the observation of the human body. In a way, she's mainly a director that conducts physical action to understand feeling and sensation -- that's why Beau Travail frames every detail in these soldiers' lives, from getting their clothes ironed to exercises in the sand, handling gear, free time in the sea, hard training under the sun and dancing in the night.

Even the scenes in which the groups of soldiers dance feel like they are repressing who they are so that they can become part of a single unit, with the choral music laid over the top emphasising the element of ritual in their training. Perhaps that is why the ending - which should by all rites be ridiculous - is such a profound moment of expression. A beautiful piece of film-making, especially with the scenes upon the outright alien landscape provided by the salt flats.

13 Ocak '13, Film, kusursuz bir duzen olarak kabul edebilecegimiz orduda, erkek olmayi, iktidar iliskilerini, 'kusursuz' erkek bedenleri araciligi ile anlatiyor. Galoup kiskanir, arzular ve onun kusuru da budur; insan olmak. Susan Sontag'ın dedigi gibi; kotu, kusursuzdur. Bu baglamda Beau Travail, antifasist bir filmdir. Kusurlu karakteri ile aslinda kusurluluga, insana ovgudur.
