La Haine [15]

Runtime: 96 mins

Distributor: BFI

Set in the aftermath of a riot, three friends – Vinz (Vincent Cassell), Hubert (Hubert Koundè) and Saïd (Saïd Taghmaoui) – navigate both law enforcement and the escalating urban discontent within the confines of the Parisian housing project they call home. As tensions increase and the threat of violence looms, the trio find themselves drifting towards an increasingly dangerous destiny. Director Matthieu Kassovitz’ honest portrayal of young men trapped by their economic, ethnic and community circumstances, La Haine is an incendiary piece of modern French cinema that speaks definitively to the current era.
