Enthralling war movie!

"There are 80,000 Arabs in the Kasbah. Are they all against us? We know they're not. In reality, it's only a small minority that dominates with terror and violence. This minority is our adversary and we must isolate and destroy it."

The Battle of Algiers is a vigorously haunting, eye-opening cinematic recreation of Algeria's struggle for independence from France that unfolded merely... read more

Since I kept hearing some really great things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out and I had some rather high expectations. Eventually,  the whole thing turned out  be even better than I expected which is something that very rarely happens. Obviously, it was highly controversial in France where it was banned for many years which is not surprising since this movie was shot only 3 ... read more

JUNE 23RD, 2016 The film isn't as strong as because of there's no important factor: emotion.

A film commissioned by the Algerian government that shows the Algerian revolution from both sides. The French foreign legion has left Vietnam in defeat and has something to prove. The Algerians are seeking independence. The two clash. The torture used by the French is contrasted with the Algerian's use of bombs in soda shops. A look at war as a nasty thing that harms and sullies everyone who participates in it.

The film isn't as strong as because of there's no important factor: emotion.

The film didn't show us examples about problems of Algiers (economy, food, death, sickness...). Is it very hard? I love Schindler's List, Platoon, Apocalypse Now... because I know the feeling of people in wars: they cried, they scared but they never give up because of their dream, their hope of peaceful days.” read more
