Free Men Reviews

May 22, 2012
Ferroukhi fails to communicate much of the fear and paranoia of living in an occupied city.

A cannily shot thriller.

The film benefits greatly from Rahim's subtle, effective performance; and it's inevitably heartening to see Jewish and Muslim Algerians identify themselves in national, not ethnic or religious, terms, while fighting a common enemy.

Rahim has the eyes of the young Mandy Patinkin. If only he had some of the wildness.

Free Men offers a pleasing historical escape via a story of everyone setting aside religious, colonial, and ethnic divides to unite against the Nazis.

"Free Men" is so-so, but it is driven by a mischievously interesting idea: that Muslims and Jews have more in common than they normally allow.

Anyone expecting an Arabic Army of Shadows will be disappointed; if a muted, moodier approach to the material befits the social-issue subtext, it also severely dampens the tension and pacing that makes these films thrum.

Free Men never feels like a movie about a developing conscience, due largely to the shallowness of the protagonist as written and, by extension, Rahim's portrayal...

A satisfying wartime espionage drama focused on little-noted intersections between Arabic emigres and the French Resistance.
