Product Overview

The critically acclaimed and Oscar nominated war epic Days of Glory (Indigenes) is "a chronicle of courage and sacrifice...told with power, grace and feeling and brought alive by first-rate acting" (A.O. Scott, The New York Times). Telling the true story of a band of World War II soldiers who heroically fought their way across Europe while battling discrimination within their own ranks, the film was hailed for its "eloquent performances and potent action sequences" (Jan Stuart, Newsday). The Los Angeles Times' Kenneth Turan called it "a North African Saving Private Ryan, a taut, involving film that delivers all the things we look for in war movies."

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review France's baldly discriminatory attitude toward the North Africans who fought on her behalf in WWII finally gets brought to the screen in Rachid Bouchareb's emotionally charged though predictable war flick "Days of Glory." Big budgeted ($16 million) multi-national production downplays its epic scale with a nicely-tuned ensemble that concentrates on personalities rather than battles, highlighting the contribution these men made despite treatment as second-class soldiers. Similar in this way to Edward Zwick's "Glory," pic's screenplay embraces too many standard-issue themes of injustice, but committed perfs and strong widescreen lensing carry the message with a righteous, if heavy weight...Location work in the North African mountains is particularly strong, and the sound department deserves praise for understanding the modulations required between battles and more intimate scenes.

Review Algeria's pick in the Oscar race for Best Foreign-Language film is a wounding indictment of discrimination in the trenches. Indigenes (the French title, meaning "Natives") is set during the last years of World War II. Equality and fraternity fell by the wayside when it came to the North African soldiers who joined France in fighting the Nazis through Italy and Provence...Director and co-writer Rachid Bouchareb, born in Paris to Algerian immigrants, knows these racial tensions are still simmering. And in this wallop of a war movie he makes you feel the heat. The superb cast, including Sami Bouajila, Jamel Debbouze, Roshdy Zem, Samy Naceri and Bernard Blancan, who plays their sergeant, shared the Best Actor prize in Cannes. The tribute is apt and inspiring. And there's more icing on the cake. Bouchareb's film helped shame the French government into raising pensions for more than 80,000 of these veterans. Here's that rare movie that really did change things. I'll be damned.

Quotes
Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal A splendid war movie. The combat sequences are harrowing -- all the more so for the director's spare, sharp-eyed style...
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times ...a kind of a North African "Saving Private Ryan," a taut, involving film that delivers all the things we look for in war movies...
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly The ensemble cast shared the best-actor award at the 2006 Cannes film festival -- and rightly so.
Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com ...leaves us feeling more connected not just with history but with what makes us human in the first place.
Wesley Morris, Boston Globe A movingly acted, terrifically old-fashioned World War II picture rethought as a post-colonial rebuke.
