A French Milestone & I am ashamed of my country (DVD)
19 May 2008 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

I knew that the Harkis shared a painful history because beings Arabs fighting for France, they are viewed as traitors by nationalist Arabs and as invaders by racist French.

But I never guessed (or be taught) that my own country, which proudly parades as cradle of human rights, have treated those families like animals! Parked in far-away country camps, forced labors, psychiatric asylum to enforce order, family life crushed since birth (babies were given French names chosen by the camp leader!). And it didn't happen in the 20s or 30 but in the 70s!

The DVD is a very moving testimony, as it offers a documentary for historic events and the movie for a drama point of view. The script is beautifully written because the harki family rotates between a terrorized and blind father and a strong and rebel daughter.

Those movie is a french "Schindler List" for the emotional level and would have deserved the same recognition and awards.

Sadly, the harki doom lasts because this movie didn't get a theater release but a TV broadcasting, and thus their fate missed a large audience and they finally stayed in shadows.
