Slow but interesting true story of a woman, a convert to Islam, whose several books about colonial Algeria became legendary.
Watching this slow French-Australian production is interesting if only to learn about the true story of a woman whose several books about colonial Algerian became legendary. Even the story of how the books came to be published is interesting.
The movie is a little pedantic about justice and colonial oppression, and the character development is a not clear. However, this fictionalized snapshot of a period not widely known by American audiences is worthwhile.
A small role by Peter O'Toole is welcome.
