| An interesting but rather disappointing film
As with Denis' latest UK release - "Trouble Every Day (2001)" - there is much to admire in this film. This study of an ex-Legionnaire looking back on his army life, and the jealousy that leads to his dismissal, powerfully depicts the claustrophobic macho lifestyle amidst the bleak African landscapes. However, as with "Trouble" I was left feeling let down by the end. The drama of the film is so contained and understated, that I thought it seems to peter out into nothing. I found this an interesting but rather disappointing film.
