A political hot potato across the Channel, Rachid Bouchareb’s follow-up to Days Of Glory is another re-write of French colonial history.
After their father and sisters are killed during a violently suppressed liberation march in the aftermath of WW2, three Algerian brothers are reunited in a suburb of Paris.
Saïd (Jamel Debbouze) seeks underworld status as a pimpcum- boxing promoter, while his righteous siblings become lethal agitators for the FLN.
Exciting but one-sided, Bouchareb’s film is a Melville-lite study of honour among dangerous men.
