The film isn't as strong as because of there's no important factor: emotion. Battle of Algiers just showed us the battles between Algieria and France, Algieria killed French, French killed Algieria, Algieria killed French... no motivation here. 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.
