English Summary:

March or Die is a 1977 British war drama film directed by Dick Richards and starring Gene Hackman, Terence Hill, Catherine Deneuve, Max von Sydow and Ian Holm.

The film celebrates the 1920s French Foreign Legion. Foreign Legion Major Foster (Hackman), a war-weary American haunted by his memories of the recently ended Great War, is assigned to protect a group of archaeologists at a dig site in Erfoud in Morocco from Bedouin revolutionaries led by El-Krim (based on Moroccan revolutionary Abd el-Krim).

The song "Plaisir d'amour", a tune about lost love and regret, is heard repeatedly through the film, serving as the film's theme song.

Soon after the Great War, Major Foster (Gene Hackman), the commander of a detachment of the French Foreign Legion, suffers the haunting memories of leading an army of 8,000, now reduced to 200. He has become an alcoholic as a result, and his only friend is his faithful Sergeant, Triand (Rufus).

Foster arrives in Paris to assume a new command: to return to the Rif (Morocco) to re-establish French authority, as the Bedouin and Berber tribes have begun to revolt against French rule. Foster is also ordered to escort archaeologists from the Louvre, who are uncovering an ancient city near Erfoud, buried by a sand storm 3,000 years ago. The site is the final resting place of a Berber saint, "The Angel of the Desert". Foster was chosen for the assignment, as he is the only French officer alive who served in Morocco before the war. He had helped to develop diplomatic ties with the tribes, especially with El Krim (Ian Holm), the de facto leader of the scattered Rif tribes. Foster had vowed to El Krim that there would be no further archeological excavations.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Az I. világháborúnak vége, a világ figyelme ismét a titokzatos fekete kontinens, Afrika felé irányul. Marco Segrain profi kasszafúró a légióban talál menedéket, ahol Foster őrnagy, a szigorú, ám mégsem igazságtalan parancsnok keze alá kerül. Útjuk Marokkóba vezet, ahol a légionáriusoknak egy pazar kincset rejtő sír feltárásában kell segédkezniük Francois Mameau régészcsapata mellett. A bonyodalmakat csak fokozza egy gyönyörű nő, aki eltűnt apja nyomát kutatja. Az expedíciót baljós előjelek és sötét árnyak kísérik...
