Arabs volunteer to fight Nazis to liberate France, their motherland. The men fight with courage against a backdrop of small and large indignities: French soldiers get better food, time for leave, and promotions. Is the promise of liberty, equality, and fraternity hollow?
This is a French film that "Explifies Human Tragedy".
One, it shows the dark side of war and the reasons why good vs. It is a film that shows the unknown exploits of brave North African "French" WWII recruits fighting alongside French compatriots to expel the Germans from their homeland We have all come accustomed to seeing so many movies of WWII, showing in detail why the Germans were so bad, yet we have never been exposed in great detail as this film as illustrated, the realities of a double standard that was practiced in those days by the victors of a repressive regime.
This is a film that touches all of us and tells us what it means to be loyal and patriotic as well as exposing that thin veil that no matter where you come from, what color or creed you may be, Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is fought with that regard in mind.
Unfortunately, as this film illustrates, those ideas are an exception to the need for victory and an exception to the rule of becoming a second class citizen again when those rules do not apply any longer. It left me with deep respect to those men of little education but full of monumental pride and dignity. I highly recommend this film and personally think that it was one of the best films I have ever seen. The acting from mostly unknown actors is simply a miracle and the director certainly deserves more credit than he has received.
How this film ever got released without the accolades it rightly deserves is certainly one of the greatest omissions in movie history.

Days of Glory
R 2h Drama , War 27 September France. Director: Rachid Bouchareb. We follow them from battles in Italy and Provence, when the north Africans were fighting side by side with the French, to an Alsatian village where they stand alone against a German battalion. The movie's original French title, Indigenes, translates as "natives", a condescending term used by the French soldiers in.
There are worst indignities as the indigenes are passed over for promotion, are refused the leave allowed to French troops, are given different food, and find their mail subjected to callous military censorship. Their treatment as second- class citizens is outlined in parallel with their self-sacrifice for France throughout a robust war movie that makes for gripping cinema.
