French to the core!
25 June 2000 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

A rather show film about people who are not very likeable, but whose lives have interest and value. Through flash back the stories of three sisters are told; each different, each with both good and bad qualities, but each very real and very human. Of particular interest is the colonialist point of view relative the the Algerian war. These people do not consider that they are interlopers. The sisters were born there -- it is their home. In historic context France was a corrupt colonial power but this is a story on more human terms not terribly interested in geo political lessons. This is a film that will require that the viewer think. If you are a car chase, blow-em-up, blood spattered on the wall junkie, save your time and money. Don't rent this one. That way you won't have to turn your head on.
