  • VERY MUCH IN TIME WITH TODAY

    Was this Algerians versus the French ? Or Muslims versus Impierialism ? Or Muslims versus Christians ? It sure took France along time along to leave ? Formation of an independent functioning countries are still taking place. All this is portrayed in this tense black and white with objectivity. Congratulations !

    A gripping, tense political thriller. Through the eyes of a young criminal, we see Algerians struggle for independence from the French. The gritty, black-and-white, documentary-style photography adds realism to the picture. The films most memorable scene has three women disguised as Europeans planting bombs at their checkpoints as teenagers and other innocents remain unsuspecting. Viewers will take from this movie based upon how they react to the film. I give it a 5/5.

    the events of succeeding years only confirms the necessity of destroying mohammadism in all it't manifestations. they have nothing to do with freedom only the destruction of life.

  • 34 Years ahead of its time [i.e. 9/11]!

    A movie about islamic terrorist [including female bombers] attacking Western Hotels,Restaurants, and Airports 34 years before 9/11! A great, stark, bleak movie that the viewer will never forget. Controversial and thought-provoking. Should be required viewing!

    This film was great if i was Algerian i would feel soo proud of this movie because it shows the fight the Algerian people gave for their independence in my view it is a true classic foreign film.

  • Amazingly relevant for our time

    This movie is remarkable in that it looks and feels like a documentary, but it recreates the actual events. Its evenhandedness is extraordinary. It portrays the Algerian resistance as generally noble, but the camera does not flinch when it shows them performing despicable acts like bombing French restaurants. It is also treats the French authorities as competent men trying to balance the maintenance of order in Algiers with the wishes of an out-of-touch government 500 miles away. They say people in the Pentagon and the State Department are watching this movie for insight into the Muslim mind. If that's all they're doing, we're in trouble, but it's not a bad start.
