Storyline

Markov and Hamilton are fellow French Legionnaire's at the end of their posting in Afghanistan. An ambush results in an abdication of duty-despite it stemming from an act of fidelity. Markov joined the Legion as a foreign refugee, hoping to gain his French citizenship and provide a better life for his young son. Ultimately, the complications of immigration and legal status takes a heartbreaking turn but also a primal urge to do right by those who have committed their lives to saving others'. Written by TV

A beautiful film
5 September 2014 | by clayboy-729-365343See all my reviews

I just had the good fortune to see this film at TIFF and must say what a pleasure it was to attend the screening. A very moving human drama, beautifully shot and directed.And great to see another terrific performance from Jeremie Renier, who is one of France's most accomplished actors.He seems to inhabit every role he takes on. The other two leads, Surho Sugaipov and Ramzan Idiev were exceptional as well.From the start, you are drawn into the world of these characters in the Foreign Legion, and as the story progresses, you can't help but feel involved in their lives. And that is the skill of the director,to bring the audience into intimacy with these three and the matters of their hearts . A great success and I truly look forward to more work from this director!!!
