For anyone who wants to see wildly inventive, peerless filmmaking that's oblivious to market-place formulas, Beau Travail is an absolute must-see.

A lovely piece of work.
66
The characters are barely characters, the story barely a story, and the elliptical filmmaking style that so besots Denis' many fans could drive you to drink.

"Chocolat" was just a warmup for the stunning display of the male form against National Geographic settings in her new Beau Travail.
63
So minimalist in characterization and dialogue that the plot all but evaporates -- and so does any dramatic power.

It easily is the most beautiful picture released in America so far this year, perhaps one of the most beautiful films ever made.

Unique and unforgettable.
