This film is based on the 1992 nonfiction book La guerre sans nom (The War without a Name) by the French historian Patrick Rotman and its subsequent 2002 documentary adaptation by France3, directed by Florent Emilio Siri, who also produced this feature film. It tells the story of Lieutenant Terrien (Benoît Magimel), a naïve and inexperienced army officer who volunteers for active service in the Algerian War (1954–62). Throughout the film, Lt. Terrien’s idealistic view of the war is shaped by his experiences and interactions with enemy forces, civilians, and his own platoon.
