Every July 14th, people from all over the world travel to Paris to witness the annual military parade on the Champs-Élysées. Among these troops, one of the most anticipated are the soldiers of the French Foreign Legion. As we watch them move down the street in perfect unison and with unwavering discipline, we remember their feats in some of the most dangerous theatres around the globe.

For months before this parade, we follow these soldiers through their rigorous selection process and demanding training regimen. The new recruits learn how to fight in hand-to-hand combat, live together as a cohesive unit, and unite as a team. Every step is filled with peril as any wrong move could mean certain elimination.

For anyone interested in gaining further insight into this unique process, director Frédéric Cristea has created a riveting documentary that goes behind-the-scenes of the Foreign Legion’s selection and training process. From witnessing these brave men and women attempting difficult physical tasks to learning about their courageous stories, this documentary brings us up close and personal with those who risk it all in service of their country. This film offers an unparalleled look at courageous individuals who embody strength and fortitude like never seen before – viewers won’t want to miss it!
