Rachid Bouchareb in Days of Glory

Days of Glory

2006 R

Rachid Bouchareb's powerful pedagogical film chronicles the journey of four North African soldiers who join the French army to help liberate France from Nazi occupation during World War II, re-creating a chapter largely ignored by history. The film -- which drew an Oscar nod for Best Foreign Language Film and won a 2006 Cannes Film Festival award for its ensemble cast -- pays overdue tribute to the heroism of these forgotten troops.
