Crépuscule Des Ombres (Twilight Of Shadows)

1958. Algeria. The commander Saintenac, entrenched in the heart of the Sahara, pursues his brutal war. For him Algeria is France. The soldier Lambert, a conscientious objector arrives from Paris. Saintenac views him as a traitor. The commander wishes to redress this insubordinate youth. His solution is to torture Khaled, a native of the desert fighting the colonial injustice, so as to punish the idealistic Lambert. Saintenac orders Lambert to execute the enemy. Beyond this slender and somber page of history, between convictions and doubts, trapped in the chaos of the Algerian revolution, three men will face their destiny.
