Directed by Claire Denis | 1999

With Denis Lavant, Michel Subor, Grégoire Colin

Jealousy and obsession simmer on the sunbaked coast of Djibouti in Denis’ masterpiece, a hypnotically languorous take on Herman Melville’s Billy Budd which turns the everyday rhythms of military life into a dreamily choreographed erotic ballet. Denis Lavant is the French Foreign Legion officer whose destructive fixation with a handsome young recruit culminates in one of the most unforgettable endings in 1990s cinema.
