The New York Times

“An achingly beautiful meditation on work, honor, pleasure, and betrayal.” —Entertainment Weekly

New 4k restoration! Jealousy and obsession simmer on the sunbaked coast of Djibouti in Claire 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.
