BEAUFORT tells the story of LIRAZ LIBERTI, the 22 year-old outpost commander, and his troops in the months before Israel pulled out of Lebanon. This is not a story of war, but of retreat. This is a story with no enemy, only an amorphous entity that drops bombs from the skies while terrified young soldiers must find a way to carry out their mission until their very last minutes on that mountaintop. As LIRAZ lays the explosives which would destroy that very same structure that his friends had died defending, he witnesses the collapse of all he's been taught as an officer, and his soldier's mental and physical disintegration.

a remarkable war movie with a cinematic style that actually says something original about war
Beaufort is a remarkable war movie, with a cinematic style that really says something about the war and the situation in which the troops are in. the story is told through the eyes of the main character, Liraz, who's awareness of himself and the nature of the battle he's in gradually deepens into a sharp and original view on war and fear of death. the tension that is created throughout the film is a result not of fast paced action events, but through a series of scenes that takes the viewer into the world of this outpost, with all its claustrophobia, and mixed emotions that include the thrill of danger and numbness toward tragedy, but also simple fear that cannot be overcome. I recommend this movie to everyone.
