La Guerre sans nom
by Bertrand Tavernier• 1992• 4h00• Classics, Historical film
Between 1951 and 1962, nearly three million young Frenchmen, called up or recalled, fought a war that did not mean its name: the Algerian War. Thirty years later, those who have never spoken, tell their stories. Bertrand Tavernier and Patrick Rotman are on the side of the citizens, manipulated or betrayed. The witnesses are all from the Grenoble region, where a violent demonstration against the departure of the conscripts took place in May 1956. They are filmed in the setting that best suits their state of mind, and what must be emphasized here is the respect for each other, whatever their opinions.
