Beau Travail

BEAU TRAVAIL focuses on ex-Foreign Legion officer, Galoup(Denis Lavant), 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(Grégoire Colin), 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.


Galoup est un ancien officier de la Légion étrangère, il se souvient de sa vie glorieuse, dirigeant des troupes dans le golfe de Djibouti. Sa vie était heureuse, stricte et disciplinée, mais l'arrivée d'une jeune recrue prometteuse, Sentain, a jeté les bases de la jalousie dans l'esprit de Galoup.
