Abstract

ABSTRACT Though the two films seem rather different—Bruno Dumont's Flanders dealing with an imaginary contemporary war, Rachid Bouchareb's Days of Glory concerned with forgotten incidents in World War II—the argument of this essay is that they share a sense, somewhat unusual among recent French filmmakers, of the political power of cinema.
