Abstract

Director Mahmoud Zemmouri, an Algerian émigré, offers a satirical perspective of the Algerian War of Independence. Two young men exchange their teenage rebellion, expressed through their obsession with pop culture, with the one surrounding them. Though they join the National Liberation Front, their fear, cowardice, and opportunism characterize their service.
