A really nice insight in a country oversea from mine
I really enjoyed watching this movie, it has a slow pace where the director films intensively the expression of the characters making you feel that you can read their minds. The landscape and characters are both splendid, "majestueux" (which I would translate as "elegant with a touch of grace" in English). It was also a nice insight of the problems in Algeria, many still present from the cicatrice of the French colonisation. As a French, I was really interested to have the view from their part. As many times the History we learn at school does not deserve the uppercase 'H' because it is often biased. * warning, occidental point of view here: * And most of all, this film present the fight of women in a country where their place is not comparable to the men's one.
