Director: Claire Denis
Run Time: 92 minutes, Certificate: ,
A former Foreign Legionnaire reminisces about his last tour of duty as a drill sergeant major in Djibouti, recalling the respect and repressed love he felt for his commanding officer and how those feelings came to the boil with the arrival of a new recruit. A fascinating female director's perspective on how men cope in an all-male society. A non-violent and highly original story with visually stunning desert locations.
