Un prophète

Jacques Audiard Frankreich, 2009

Harry Rossi's rating of the film Ein Prophet

Holy crap, this was even better than the hype lead me to believe. What a miracle of a movie! The fact that a 2 1/2 hour prison film wasn't in the least bit dull for a second was impressive enough, but to have it also be exquisitely shot, acted and written is even more impressive! This entire film was a completely immersive and wonderful experience! Loved every second of it and would gladly watch it again!
