Description

'The Battle of Algiers' tells the story of the life-and-death struggle between the French colonial government of Algeria and the Algerian Liberation Front, the FLN, who wanted the French out and were willing to set off bombs to do it. The French sent in their elite Paratroopers with the order to use Any Means to break the insurgent - torture included. It's a true story, done on location with many of the FLN appearing in it, including the producer who was indeed a senior FLN figure. This film is a passionate yet completely impartial record of struggle which led to Algeria’s Independence.

Great film

This is a really masterpiece. It is a movie that greatly catches the atmosphere and realities of the urban guerillas. It is also exceptional that it doesn’t take sides, both Algerians and French are seen to do horrendous deeds and you can also understand positions of both sides. The movie is also very entertaining and very well acted. Very highly recommended.
