Storyline

A "Reformed Colonel" is found dead in Paris, a couple of decades after Algeria's struggle for independence was won from France. Lieutenant Galois is assigned the investigation of this murder. She receives the diary of Lieutenent Guy Rossi who served under The Colonel in Algeria in 1956, and has been reported as missing in action since 1957. The revelations found in Rossi's diary go far beyond The Colonel's actions in Algeria, and give an insight on how dirty Algeria's War for Independence really was. Written by Gonz30

Trivia

Due to the tense situation in Algeria where the movie was shot, the crew and cast had to be constantly escorted by Algerian servicemen. Nevertheless Olivier Gourmet once found himself alone walking across a district of an Algerian town on his way to the filming dressed as a French colonel. Fortunately, no harm ensued. See more »

Captivating!
11 September 2006 | by etiennepelletierSee all my reviews

I attended the World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Incredibly shot, marvelous acting and a story that will make you think strongly not only about the situation then but of the situation in our current day world. Costa-Gavras' script (co-written with Jean-Claude Grumberg) is tight and stimulating.

I really hope to see this movie in theatres soon for every one to enjoy.

Terrific final cameo with Aznavour!

Congratulations guys.
