Working Outside the Law 

New DVD release

It seems in America that our world-history education falls flat, making movies about historical events all the more appealing. Outside the Law is the story of three Algerian brothers in France during World War II and subsequent years. While we've all studied the American side of it, we could be a little hazy on the details of Algerian independence and the Algerian War.

After the brothers lose their home in Algeria, they find themselves in very different places: Messaoud becomes a member of the French army in Indochina; Abdelkader is a leader for Algerian independence in France, and Saïd moves to Paris, making his money in clubs and boxing halls. Because of curious connections, the siblings find themselves together again in the city of lights to gain freedom for their home country.
