Cert: 15 Year: 1999 Length: 93 mins Language: Subtitles
Inspired by Herman Melville's Billy Budd, the film unfolds in flashback form as a former Foreign Legion sergeant-major remembers his service in the remoteness of Djibouti. Perfect cinematography conveys the appeal of the azure sea and the athletic, graceful movements of the soldiers. A visual treat and a beautifully crafted soundtrack.
A masterpiece... prepare to be blown away
