Winner of the prestigious Palme d'Or at Cannes in 1975, Chronicle of the Years of Embers portrays Algeria's struggle for independence from French colonial rule. The story follows a peasant's migration from his drought-stricken village to his eventual participation with the Algerian resistance movement, just prior to the outbreak of the Algerian War of Independence.

I saw this movie several times with the same pleasure each time, it is about the struggle for freedom of the Algerian people, and the huge sacrifices made by them to gain independence and liberty, for whom who are interested in knowing some of the glorious history of Algeria, this film is a bible, and for those just interested in freedom struggle this movie is a reference.
