Movie Info

During World War II, North African troops encounter bigotry and unfair treatment from their French comrades-in-arms, despite the fact that they bravely fight for a country they have never seen. Some, like Abdelkader (Sami Bouajila), believe that fighting for France is the only way to achieve equality, but Martinez hides his Arab ancestry and treats his men poorly.

  • Instead of guys named Danny and Polack and Sol and Brooklyn, you've got guys named Said and Yassir and Messaoud and Abdelkader. But it's the same deal. Prick them, do they not bleed? Blow them up, do their limbs not scatter and their guts not spill?

  • Its message is dimmed by a procession of war and race movie clichés that even the excellent cast and epic cinematography cannot revive.

  • A solidly-constructed window onto an era and a culture clash many Americans never knew existed.

  • A shattering tale of bravery and unrewarded loyalty.

    March 23, 2007 | Rating: A-
  • It's to the credit of the actors, and Algerian-born director Rachid Bouchareb, that we become emotionally involved with the soldiers and the injustices they are forced to endure.

    Days Of Glory is a grim reflection on the events of World War II from the perspective of the unrewarded bravery and loyalty of colonial Algeria to liberate France from Germany. Passionate. Straightforward. Historically important.

    Being ignorant of this historical warfare, I was absolutely lost in the beginning. I couldn't understand why X was fighting for Y against Z unless X was ruled by Y. But I was able to get hold of it soon. But I wasn't able to understand several things. Why Sergeant Martinez recommended Abdelkader for promotion even after getting into a fight with him and with all their differences? Why would Said stake his life for Sergeant after he wants him to go to hell? Okay, I can take it that one or two of 'em have an all-of-a-sudden change of heart. But what's shown here is too hard to digest. Seemed like the makers lost their tabs on logic while trying to show/be clear enough that their intentions were pure. Of all the actors, Abdelkader was the best.

    A strangely old fashioned war movie unfolds around this worthy subject matter. It's a reasonably good picture; well crafted with good action sequences and an interesting topic - even without those points in its favour its uniqueness alone makes it worth watching. In terms of historical accuracy, some may call it one sided as it makes no mention of the negative contraversies regarding these units but given that that was clearly not in its brief the film succeeds quite well at informing and more so at entertaining.
