You have here the kind of tale that Rachid Bouchareb could have given us, if you consider his INDIGENES and HORS LA LOI. You already had some French films about African soldiers during WW2 in France, such as LES ENFANTS DU PAYS, back in 2006...The true story of a Black soldier who fought among the French army and who was later involved with the French resistance forces. A true compelling and poignant story, gloomy, but so well acted with a young Black actor who looks like Yaphet Kotto when he was thirty years old; same face, same eyes. Do not miss it.
