A movie you've seen before, when it was set on the Apache reservation or in the Vietnamese jungle.

Along the way, Siri exposes French hypocrisy -- showing that the Algerian rebels were only doing what the French Resistance did in battling the Nazis who ruled their country in WorldWar II.

With its sententious air of historical reckoning, Enemies is an impressive monument, but not a moving one.

Director Florent Emilio Siri ('The Nest', 'Hostage') shows ability in action sequences and group dynamics but his film never develops sufficiently to raise it much above the conventional.

Visceral and engrossing.

A harrowing but formulaic insight into the realities experiened by French conscripts during the Algerian War.

Terrien's journey is more conventional, but still powerful and well acted.

a no-holds-barred history with alarming lessons for the current 'War on Terror'.

Pulls no punches in its depiction of the gruesome nature of guerilla warfare and the ensuing decay of morality.

Truly unforgettable and revelatory, L'Ennemi intime presents a rare glimpse into the realities of war in all its gory detail, tempered with a heartbreaking insight into our inescapably frail human consciousness.

Rotman's reliance on speechifying to get his points across essentially drains anything even resembling authenticity from the film...
