In 2006, there was one film that was so powerful, it would change the course of history...
1943. They had never set foot on French soil, but because France was at war, four young Algerian men, Said (Jamel Debbouze), Abdelkader (Sami Bouajila), Messaoud (Roschdy Zem) and Yassir (Samy Naceri), enlisted in the French army along with 130,000 other 'indigenous soldiers', to liberate the 'fatherland' from the Nazi enemy.
DAYS OF GLORY chronicles the story of these forgotten heroes, the injustices they faced at the time of war, and the discrimination they have subsequently encountered from the French authorities. After seeing the film, French President Jacques Chirac agreed to restore veterans' pensions to the North Africans who fought alongside French troops during the war.
A movie can make a difference...
