Days of Glory

With the popularity of Client Eastwood’s Letter from Iwo Jima, it’s a fresh approach when the tale is told from another country as opposed to the usual American or British perspective of World War II and Days of Glory is another tale which is told from a French perspective of Algerian troops as they are attacked by both the Axis and the racism of their commanding French officers.

The film is so vivid and intense due to the research and passion that both Bouchareb and his co-writer Oliver Morelle gave the film, it makes Days of Gloryone of the most realistic war films to date and is quite engaging from its early moments to the battles that we witness.

Days of Glory revolves around a group of soldiers located in the Northern colonies Africa who are enlisted into the 130,000 strong army of indigenous soldiers. As the war devastates the world around them, this film shows the destruction that these foreign "French" soldiers endured out of France during World War II and how they recruited men from other nations to boost their forces for a homeland that was never theirs.

It also raises quite a few social issues from racism to socio-economic hardships that were faced by all nations during this turbulent time. Emotional, engaging and quite memorable, this movie is one of the best films I have seen in a long time.
