At the height of it's glory, the French Foreign Legion

consisted of men considered, common ... the dregs of society.

-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

It was an army of mercenaries in the northern colonies

of Africa and Southeast Asia.

However, it's soldiers did not swear allegiance to France,

but only to the Legion and their peers.

-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

The Legion was not interested in the past of it's men.

Neither did it offer many hopes for the future.

-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

The Legionnaires fought to the last man standing.

Whatever the conflict. Whatever the cause.

-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

It was a hard way of getting a second chance in life.


- Maxim?

-Rene, oh would you like a drink?

No, no, no let's have a talk. Heh?

You said midnight.

Not to worry, he'll be here.

My brother does not like

to be kept waiting.

It's disrespectful!

I promise you! Ten minutes.

That's all you get, huh?


Alan, what the hell do you think

you're doing?

-Meeting you.

-Aren't you supposed to be an hour ago.

Jeez, Alan, can't you just for once

help me out?

- Why do you have to make everything so difficult?

- Oh, Maxim you love it.

You don't get off the hook that easy.

Especially after what I've been

thru setting this up.

Galgani has sunk a lot of cash

into this deal.

We have an opportunity to make

some real money ...

... and maybe even hold onto it

for a change.

Hey Julot, how's the glass jaw?

Monsieur Galgani, this is

Alan Lefevre.

- You are late.

- Better late than never.

Who's this comedian? I thought

you managed a fighter.

Excuse me, Mr. Lefevre, ...

I never do business ...

in the presence of ...

... the female gender.


Let's go to the bar.

Julot tells me you are someone

who can be trusted.

Please... bear with my bluntness

if I get straight to the point.

It's ok by me.

The gates have been good.

You are a big draw.

I'll give you a shot at Julot for ...

twice ... your normal purse.

Not bad!

There is just one minor stipulation.

Which is?

You take a dive in the second round.

I don't crash the canvas for anyone.

You're over your head.

Don't push your luck.

My brother, I love him dearly,

but he tends to jump the gun.

Let me help you comprehend

the situation.

You fight for me ...

... or you never fight again.


Hey Katrina.


You know I hate keeping people waiting.

Not now, Katrina. This is business.

Either you come now, or I leave by myself.

I think it would be a very wise decision

to accept my offer ...

... Mr. Comedian.

You, come with me.

So, what's your answer, Big Shot?

I'll do it.

What was that all about?

How could you embarass me like that?

So that was the Romeo who

left you standing at the altar.

That shallow two-bit clown.

Why did you do this to me?

Especially after everything

I've done for you.

If it wasn't for me, ...

you'd still be just an immigrant ...

threading needles in that filthy shop.

You make me do these things

that hurt you.


Don't do this to us.

You know I love.

Half before the fight. The rest after.


Arrange it.

Hey, Lucien.

We have a deal.

What made him change his mind?

What can I tell you?

You're not the only Galgani

who's got the goods, heh?

It's a pitty everyone doesn't learn

as quickly as you do.

May I help you?


Is it me? Or are you just stubborn?


It's just that I always take care of myself.

That's it.

You came. I knew you would.


Is that the way to welcome an old friend?
