Director: Rachid Bouchareb

Distributor: IFC Films

Trademark Nominated for an Academy award for best “Best foreign language film of the year”

“The True Story So Controversial, It Couldn’t Be Told Until Now.”

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “The tale of a group of African soldiers who join the French in their fight against the Nazis. Although they passionately battle to defend the motherland, a place they’ve never been, they face inequality and daily humiliation within the French army. These heroes that history forgot won battles throughout Europe before finding themselves alone to defend a small village against a German battalion.”

—Jay Weissberg, Variety
…it could be a better movie but it certainly convinces you of the nobility of the souls of the men whose boots were on the ground and whose bodies went into the same ground…
—Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
…its message is dimmed by a procession of war and race movie clichés that even the excellent cast and epic cinematography cannot revive…
—Jonathan Trout, BBC
