Cast
Jamel Debbouze - Saïd Otmari
Samy Naceri - Yassir
Roschdy Zem - Messaoud Souni
Sami Bouajila - Abdelkader
Bernard Blancan - Sergent Roger Martinez

The film deals with the contribution of North African soldiers to the Free French Forces during the Second World War and, controversially, with the discrimination against them. The film's release contributed to a partial recognition of the pension rights of soldiers from former French possessions by the French government.
Synopsis : Saïd, an impoverished goat herder, joins the 7th Algerian Tirailleur Regiment. With him are several other Berber men, including Yassir, who is seeking booty so that he can return home and his brother can marry; Messaoud, who wants to marry and settle in France; and literate Corporal Abdelkader, who is fighting for the equality and rights of the colonized Algerians.Soon the men, dressed in lend-lease American uniforms meet Sergeant Martinez, a battle-hardened pied noir, who trains them before leading them on their first mission in the Italian Campaign. It soon becomes clear that their white commanding officer is using the colonial troops as cannon fodder to identify artillery targets.The colonial troops discover that while they are not allowed breaks, the white Free French Forces are given leave to return home in France.
