The Battle of Algiers


A reconstructed history so powerful it scared the French, who delayed screenings for five years, inspired revolutionaries worldwide and often comes to eclipse the actual histories it depicts. This stunningly shot and orchestrated drama (music by Ennio Morricone) retells the events of the Algerian War for Independence through composite characters of heartbreaking reality and unforgettable visual and sonic tableaus. Not only the revolutionaries but even the colonizers and soldiers who torture them are human, and the violence of both all the more painful for the beliefs that underpin destruction. For those who have seen Pontecorvo's Burn! (p.12) within the Brando cycle, this earlier classic also raises important questions about the politics and power of cinema, on and off screen. And for those who have never seen it, the time has come.
