Description 1954. France, after the independence of the nations comprising Indochina, turns its attention to incidents in French Algeria, which they have ruled for approximately one hundred thirty years. The National Liberation Front (FLN) is leading the resistance in Algeria against their colonial rulers, the FLN who the French authorities believe, or want to believe, comprise only a small minority of the Muslim Algerian population in wanting Algerian independence. Specific incidents in this battle in Algiers between 1954 and the time of independence in 1962 are presented. The FLN began their campaign in shooting military police in the Casbah, the predominantly Muslim quarter of the city, as they were able to blend back into the scene with the support of the populace. These initial one by one attacks escalated on both sides to mass killings, where collateral damage was seen as being acceptable. Both sides also worked toward the United Nations discussion on the issue, each wanting global support for their cause. The events largely focus on two people, one on each side. The first is Ali La Pointe, a lifelong petty criminal and illiterate who the FLN recruited after being politicized while in prison. The second is French paratrooper Colonel Mathieu, a lead French strategist whose main goal is to dismantle the FLN activities by "cutting off the head of the tapeworm".

In the same way that "A Man Called Horse" was a masterful piece of art, "Emanuelle and the Saint" is a masterful piece of art. The story is simple, but the message is very powerful. We see a young Algerian girl (played by actress Julien Aouad) who is the only child of a wealthy family who has not been able to support her family. She is a genius and a scholar and in this film she has been working on a project for several years, which is the invention of a machine that can detect the presence of radioactive waste in the environment. Unfortunately, her father is opposed to the project and believes that it is too dangerous and will cause the contamination of the environment. Emmanuelle (played by Isabelle Adjani) is her main assistant and mother and is working hard to persuade her father to reconsider the project. One day, she receives a letter from her father, informing her that he is going to meet with a group of people who are all concerned about the project. The group consists of the mayor of the city, the head of the city council, a doctor, the head of the hospital and others. They are all worried about the contamination of the environment and how it will affect the health of the citizens. Emmanuelle is the only one of the group who is willing to go along with the project. She decides to go and discovers that the project is going to be funded by the French government and that the project will be able to detect the presence of radioactive waste. The French government, being a supporter of the project, wants to go ahead with the project as soon as possible. Emmanuelle decides to try and persuade her father to change his mind. The movie is very well made, with an interesting script, good acting and a great performance by Adjani. The idea of the movie is very powerful and has been well executed. The message is very powerful and the movie is worth watching. I would recommend this movie to everyone who has a love for art and for people who are interested in social issues. My vote is eight.

This movie was made in the midst of the cold war, when the Soviets were still very much in control of Europe, and the West was split between the "Axis of Evil" and the "Axis of Good". The result of the war was the collapse of the Soviet Union and the West's complete isolation. One of the few countries left in Europe that had a say in its future was France. It was an easy decision for the French to make, but one that they would regret. It was not only France that had to take the decision to leave the Soviet Union, but Germany also. That decision was not easy for Germany either, but it was also not a bad one. The German people, like the French people, had their own reasons for leaving the Soviet Union, but it was the Soviet Union's decision to leave Germany that was the real problem. The story of this film is very much like the story of another film, "Der Untergang", about the German and Soviet invasion of Poland in 1939. Like that film, "Algeri" is a very well made film. It is full of scenes that are very realistic, and that helps to bring the story to life. The film has an interesting story, and although it is not a great film, it is a good one. The actors in the film are all excellent. The only two that I did not like were Edouard Dacke and Silvia Ruhle. I did not think that either of them did a good job. Edouard Dacke, as the "insider" in the Soviet Union, was a very good choice, but Silvia Ruhle was not very convincing as the Soviet agent. She was just too wooden. The one that I did not like was the actor who played the Russian general. He was simply not convincing. The Russian general was an interesting character, but I just did not believe that he could be convincing. Overall, this film is a very good one, and it is definitely worth watching.
