Le premier homme / Il primo uomo / The First Man (2011) DVD9
The First Man is based on an unfinished autobiographic novel by French author Albert Camus (The Stranger). The film follows his alter-ego Jean Cornery (Jacques Gamblin – The Names of Love), a famous writer who returns to Algiers on the eve of the Algerian war. As he wanders through the streets of the city, he not only remembers his childhood but is also confronted to the reality of a colonial world on the verge of collapse.
With the attachment to his mother symbolizing the strong link he has to this city and country, the film successfully intertwines family and political narratives, impartially showing a world in mutation from both French and the Algerian perspectives. The film paints a poignant, yet tragic, picture of the tumultuous racial relations between the French and Arabs in Algeria during the mid-'50s.
