If you appreciate film, you will love this movie
27 July 2018 | by emersonwarrenSee all my reviews

The Algerian tells an important story that even most feature films today struggle to tell. It's a controversial yet very relevant topic that we deal with everyday in the United States. Ali's struggle with his faith and his humanity is something that is very real today, and it is masterfully portrayed by Youcef and the cinematography. There is really a lot of heart and soul dedicated into this film and I believe that is reflected by the many awards it's recieved from various film festivals. I would I highly recommend The Algerian to anyone who loves and has an appreciation for quality filmmaking.
