Contender Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Intimate Enemies (2-Disc Collector’s Edition) on 9th June 2008 priced at £19.99. Inspired by Patrick Rotman's book and subsequent documentary concerning the personal and psychological effects of the 1954-62 Algerian War of Independence on the soldiers involved in the conflict, Intimate Enemies is a war movie dramatizing the experiences of a platoon of French soldiers fighting the 'fellaghas' of Algeria's National Liberation Front in the country's remote mountain region.
Directed by Florent Emilio Siri (director of Hostage, starring Bruce Willis, and The Nest), and co-written by Siri and Rotman, the film stars award-winning French actor Benoît Magimel (The Piano Teacher) and three-time César nominee Albert Dupontel (A Very Long Engagement).
