Storyline

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.

I didn't make them understand how important their lives are. That's the job of a parent.
23 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's about Israeli soldiers holding down a fort in Southern Lebanon, but it could be about soldiers anywhere. That is what makes this film so memorable.

Lebanon, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Iraq, it is all the same when it comes to politics and the soldiers that have to carry out the policies made by chickenhawks far removed from the front.

It is touching and funny at times. I could really relate to the truck arriving with fresh supplies after a long wait. It is common and a hot meal at midnight is much appreciated when you have been running low.

It shows real soldiers doing real grunt work. It is an outstanding film.
