    Brilliant on just about all fronts. Easy to follow, simple with an important aim. Essential viewing.

    I saw this at the Angelika during its one-week qualifying run. Despite the rodents that were scampering around on the center rug of the underground multi-plex's Theatre #2 (subways are within a few feet of the theatres and can always be heard), I found this co French/Algerian war film as truly great.

    It takes awhile for this to get going and it reminded me quite a bit of letters from Iwo Jima...same basic set up/similar premise. The end sequence is worth it for sure. Catch it on video, at the very least.

    I didn't know what to expect from "Days of Glory," but the end result surprised me. With the exception of some annoyingly arrogant characters, "Days of Glory" refreshes as a different take on the World War II film genre. Defeating the Nazis only serves as a backstory, for the real story focuses on the problems of inequality and the vague meanings of justice.

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

    Committed performances and strong widescreen lensing carry the message with a righteous, if heavy weight.

    Days of Glory is as moving as it is ingenuous, with each doomed character symbolizing a different response to the collective dilemma these men face as Arabs with divided loyalties.
