This stylistic tale of pristine visual sensibility and French Legionnaires (reminiscent of Claire Denis's Beau Travail) is an intimate metaphysical look at two men trying to piece their life together after war. Told in five chapters, the story follows a soldier (Jérémie Renier) who is reunited with the man who saved his life, and unexpectedly finds himself able to repay his debt.
