Battle of Algiers

Should watch great movie.

This the story of the liberation of Algeria from the French colonies, from the perspective of the Algerians. Algerian film makers in conjunction with the Italians, making for a one sided propaganda film, which at times seems real with footage that is comparable to news reel. Documentariesque.

Although set between the years 1954 – 1962 there is a distinct comparison to more recent wars and problems faced by both sides.
