Hors-la-loi

Rachid Bouchareb Algeria, 2010

Colin Landon's rating of the film Outside the Law

Outside the Law is Bouchareb's second major film, using the same cast as Days of Glory. It's a tale of three Algerian brothers who together, bring the Algerian revolution to French soil in the 1950's. I've not seen a film that mimics scenes from the Godfather, but Outside the Law does so in a couple ways. The story is not as fluid or compelling as Days of Glory, but the political tone is very interesting in this film
