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

  • The story here isn't much, and the truth it reveals, to them and us, isn't earthshaking, just quiet and somber. show more

  • Not only a stirring history lesson and an action-packed war film, Glory is also a ferocious statement about enduring discrimination that resounds today. 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.
