Aroview: Gripping account of the Muslim uprising which led to the withdrawal of France from Algeria was shot merely four years after the revolution, and as such has a knife-edge authenticity unrivalled in political cinema. Cast includes many non-actors while Ennio Morricone scores.
5 stars (Exceptional) Among my TEN most-viewed. Indicts colonialism & French treatment of Arabs. Banned in France for showing how military attacks provoke civil reaction. Unmatched portrait of Casbahs, making a case for such houses for extended families everywhere, incl. NZ.~Sandy
0 star (Not rated) Great film. Rossellini-like neorealism. Saw it NZIFF 2004. Finally got to show my husband why it seems so relevant 50 years on. The additional documentary is also well worth a watch. Thank you Arovideo.~tammy
