Directed by Mathieu Kassovitz
Winner of Best
Director at the Cannes Film Festival 1995, Mathieu Kassovitz's harsh black-and-white drama
of dispossessed urban youth is an unremitting look at the violence, unemployment and
racial hatred that divide the young of contemporary France. Set in a Paris suburb over the
course of 24 hours, the film is remarkable for the verve of its authentic performances and
its gritty, realistic feel. French with English subtitles. Letterboxed.
