"If truth hurts, lies will kill."
7 May 2020 | by vjdino-37683See all my reviews

Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité. But already a few years later the ideals of the French revolution were reduced by Napoleonic despotism. In modern times, the downsizing took place on several occasions, see the Algerian war until its involvement in Libya. There is talk of realpolitik! Uncomfortable film, but not only for the French (understood as politicians), but for all (always politicians) belonging to the western democracies. Sinks the knife on the use of violence by politics in a cynical and hypocritical way, betraying the paragraph of this discussion. "If truth hurts, lies will kill." Films to be offered in schools during history!
