As a fan of World War II movies since my youth, enjoying such movies as 'The Big Red One' and "Kelly's Heroes" but never being satisfied with the recent films such as "Pearl Harbour" and even "Saving Private Ryan" until watching Rachid Bouchareb's "Days of Glory". Two things really stood out for me in this film that made it just have that little bit extra quality; first of all the pacing of the movie was a little bit slower, but not slow enough to enable you to leave the room for a snack. Even though the pacing was toned down the battle scenes were still very effective. The pace of the movie was not bogged down by the small parts that romance played in this film. The second thing that made this movie special was the storyline, the whole Algerian/French plot line, this is something I knew nothing of but found extremely interesting and was glad to learn about it aftwards. The movie was well acted and the cinematography was engaging but the pacing and the story line were what gave this film an extra star.

Format: DVD
Usually a good war movie does an effective job accentuating separately the heroic, the pathetic, or the dramatic qualities of military conflict but rarely all three together. Well, here might be the exception to the rule: The French filmmaker, Rachid Bouchareb, created in 2006 a masterpiece of film originally titled "Indigenes" and later converted to "Days of Glory" for the North American market. In it he portrays the life and times of four North African soldiers who do service for DeGaulle's Free French Army during WW II. Based on historical records of what these French-African recruits had to endure in the way of racial discrimination from their French superiors, Bouchareb develops a story that takes them through a number of bloody campaigns from Italy in 1943 to Alsace-Lorraine in 1944. Each time, these enlistees performed heroically under fire; each time, they are passed over for promotion and treated spitefully by their fellow Frenchmen. As the Free French move into eastern France to reclaim Alsace-Lorraine, these four men , along with the leader, an Algerian Staff Sergeant Martinez. hold a French village against a whole platoon of German soldiers. This battle should become the dramatic moment in which their courage under fire makes them national heroes for defeating the enemy at great personal sacrifice. It is the coda or the special ending in the movie that reveals the truly regrettable pathos of war: what a nation does or doesn't do for the men and women who save it in its hour of greatest need. The acting was great, the storyline compelling and well-laid out, and the settings very appropriate. Overall, a very thought-provoking and challenging film that raises important unresolved issues of national concern like the need for justice.

This is one of those great movies you remember for a long time after watching. Yes, it's a WWII movie, but not your traditional WWII movie or even that crap they put out of hollywood. This movie is historical, intelligent and captivating. The plot surrounds Muslim soldiers in the French army fighting Nazi Germany. It documents their battles, both on and off the field of combat and their resilience. If you're a fan of anything that doesn't come from hollywood and something historically accurate you will thoroughly enjoy this movie. The characters are believable and you easily become emotionally invested in their plight. From Alsace to the Rhone Valley to Marseille you feel as if you were really there with them through it all. Great ending and great story. I would compare the idea of the story as similar to Saving Private Ryan; however, this story is far more moving and captivating.
