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.

One of the most beautiful israeli films ever
4 May 2007 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Beaufort is an impressive israeli movie with fantastic photography and With excellent cast but some of the scenes are stuck and prolonged too Much. Beaufort is a movie that make you look on the other side of the war,of the mental and the physical side of the soldiers.it makes you understand the difficulties,dilemmas and the unbearable fear with some excellent And Impressive action scenes that makes us feel the soldier's situation in the war. This is a movie that can show the world the condition and the position of the Israelis soldiers that know the Israeli-Palestine conflict and can show the human side in the war and not only the wild and savage side.

There aren't any real winners at war but there are real injured and dead soldiers and people.This movie show you.
