The Battle of Algiers: Gilles Pontecorvo (30.07.08)

I saw this film again a short while ago and confirmed my earlier impression that it is an excellent piece of work. Not only
is the camera work first-rate but the composition and the acting are equally worthy of praise. The film has been criticised for
its political stance but this is really irrelevant. It gives a reasonable interpretation of what did happen and does not really
condemn either side.
