International Panorama: France

In this captivating and engrossing film, one man arrives in Paris to join the Foreign Legion, whilst another struggles against the oil companies threatening his village. If you enjoyed Claire Denis’ ‘Beau Travail’ (1999), you will love this.

In Detail

After a painful journey through Europe, Belarusian Alex (Franz Rogowski) joins the Foreign Legion in France and clings to a confused hope of a European identity. Nigerian Jomo (Morr Ndiaye), fights for the survival and durability of his people in the Niger Delta and is ready to die to defend his ideas.

These two young people who are sacrificed and smashed together will, against all odds, meet and their destinies will merge to continue across borders, bodies, life and death. Visually stylish and alluring in a dreamlike way, ‘Disco Boy’ is an incredible filmmaking debut, and an unpredictable one as well, in which Rogowski continues to prove he’s one of this generation’s most intriguing actors.
