Days of Glory (Algeria/France 2006) 128´ 06/06/2013

This Algerian film was directed by Rachid Bouchareb. It tells the story of four North African men, who enlist in the French army to liberate that country from Nazi oppression.

The film was exhibited in different festivals. The main four actors, Jamel Debbouze, Samy Naceri, Roschdy Zem, Sami Bouajila and Bernard Blancan won the Prix d'interprétation masculine at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival.
"With this movie, Rachid Bouchareb achieved something that hardly any director can claim - specific political change with one particular movie. He made an old-fashioned second world war drama in the Spielbergian style - premiered at last year's Cannes film festival - telling the almost forgotten story of the gallant sacrifice made by indigènes, or native forces, from the French north African colonies."
