Excellent war film
22 January 2020 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

The films made by the French about the Algerian war were not so numerous. And I guess Rachid Bouchareb would not have given the same product for the same subject, the same topic. Remember what he did with INDIGENES and HORS LA LOI. very good movies but so didactic, features where he told you what to think, where the French were always the evil ones and the Arabs the good ones. Here, nothing like this, and it is made by an Algerian born director, an excellent screen writer too. There is not such scheme in this awesome, brutal, gritty film, where the evils guys are on both sides. This film shows us how awful was this tragedy. Terrific performances, including Olivier Gourmet, as a renegade French officer.
