Fifty years after the Independence of Algeria, the civil war 1954-62 is still a unknown subject for many people. This documentary brings along facts and data to understand why such events were a big trauma for both communities and by the way, explains the reason for the return to the power of the General de Gaulle (set up of a French constitution in 1958).

Fifty years after the independence day ( 5/07/62), this historical documentary is one of the best I've seen about those events. It covers the whole period after WW two, does not balance too obviously for one side, shows very the intimate links with the french political upheaval in 58 when a new constitution is set up.
to be seen absolutely for who is trying to understand why there was no good solution, but people trapped into their own community, and false information.
The trauma has been dragging down many french troop soldiers during decades after the end of the Algerian war, because no one wad prepared to speak frankly about, and not only using "cliches" pros and cons the Arabs.
PS I lives in Algerian for two years in the 70s. What peaceful and beautiful country it used to be at this time...
