    Beau Travail

    ★★★★½

    Criterion Challenge 2022
    18/52
    19. Directed by Claire Denis

    Calm skies of blue contrasted with heartless patches of endless desert browns. The colonial French legion and the bemused Djiboutians. Delicacy and toughness. Repression and eventual catharsis.

Asking yourself whether the good is really good and the bad is really that bad.
