Probably the best film ever made. If one has not seen this film, one cannot begin to imagine Pontecorvo's extraordinary achievement. The Battle of Algiers depicts an episode of the war, occurred in Algiers, capital city of French Algeria, it reconstructs events occurred in the city between November 1954 and December 1960, during the Algerian War of Independence. The Battle of Algiers was inspired by a book written by Saadi Yacef, about the "Souvenirs de la Bataille d'Alger", by Saadi Yacef, a former NFL and member of the parliment after the independence of Algeria. The film has a stunning realism, epsc. in the scenes that depicts the city life not to mention the riots in the city. And both music and sound (effects) is of crucial importance; Morricone`s orchestral score (for the emotional attachment for the viewer). Elegiac music is used to evoke the parralels between the French and Alergian civilian (who all get slaughterd). Then: Indigenous Algerian drumming,. Rather than dialogue, is heard during a scene where (female) FLN militants prepare for a bombing. This film is Obligat for everyone that believes they love film.
