This is a great film done documentary style, but not a documentary.

I really recommend this film if you can find it.

I saw it a couple of years ago, it impressed me with how powerful it was, and that it wasn't the propaganda piece I was expecting, to either side really.

Whilst it showed the Algerians as personal characters, and the problems they suffered, it made it very clear that they were terrorists. Also that the French military mindest was doomed to failure.

There aren't really any good guys in this film. Or any bad guys, depending on how you look at it.
