A memory of the war of Algeria (all) against an inventory history

Between a (personal) lived history and an inventory history (to teach), Cartouche gauloises (2006) stands out in sharp contrast to the other films made by Medhi Charef. This film is the site of the omission of the impossible indigenous past and those of an assertion of a postcolonial identity claiming for a recognition in France. It also finds an echo of a specific reading of the colonial history, in France and in Algeria, that build an idealized memory of the links between the different communities in the French Algeria.
