Horror, the horror
28 July 2009 | by fat-frogSee all my reviews

Well, Some official critics wrote "the French Apocalypse Now". Well, it's much less, hum, metaphorical than apocalypse now. Not just because of the countryside aspect. Were no more in the damp swamps of Vietnam, but the dry lands of Mediterranean countries. Here is just the ugly truth. No black and white, grey, like the uniforms covered of dust. That's a great aspect of this movie. They just show ordinary men becoming Beast. Because it's war, because war is ugly, because this wasn't an ordinary war. It's deeply based on true facts, like this former Resistant using torture, despite having being tortured himself while a resistant. Or those two Algerian mates, who used to fight in the Monte Casino against the German... and then one of them kill the other, because they're in two different side, and one of them had his family killed by the other one's friends. And the fellagas using ugly means, because there's no other mean to free your country. I was more shaken by this movie than I was by any Vietnam movies. Because, well, maybe, Terrien, he could just have been me.
