Plot Summary
During World War II, North African troops encounter bigotry and unfair treatment from their French comrades-in-arms, despite the fact that they bravely fight for a country they have never seen. Some, like Abdelkader (Sami Bouajila), believe that fighting for France is the only way to achieve equality, but Martinez hides his Arab ancestry and treats his men poorly.

  • 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. show more

  • A splendid war movie. The combat sequences are harrowing -- all the more so for the director's spare, sharp-eyed style -- and the performances are phenomenally fine. show more

  • With strong visuals and even stronger emotions, Rachid Bouchareb's Days of Glory makes a powerful war film about a particularly unique subject. show more

    Well done film about North Africans with allegiance to France who fought with the French in WW II. Slow in parts but has gripping action segments, concluding with a strong finish. Well worth watching.
