Beautiful Cinematography, 21 August 2007
Author: Wout from France

Historic events seen through the eyes of children. A relatively unknown ending of French colonial times in Algeria.

Sometimes shocking images become bearable, because they are seen by innocent children's eyes. John Lennon would have been proud. Overall, I liked the movie because of these above-mentioned aspects. I have never been in Algeria itself, but the movie gives a great view of everyday life during the time period it concerns. Also I really liked the scenery and music that relates to Algeria. Interesting story, and definitely worth watching. (Even for people who are neither French nor Algerian).
