Un prophète

Jacques Audiard Frankreich, 2009

Susana Bessa's rating of the film Ein Prophet

In the words of New Yorker's film critic Anthony Lane: (...) "On a short furlough, Malik goes through airport security and, without thinking, opens wide and sticks out his tongue, as he would during a regular inspection. It’s a moment of greatness, like Chaplin walking away from an assembly line in “Modern Times", (...) and it suggests that you never really get out of jail. You just take your cage and leave. "
