A trio of Parisian, Jewish and African teenage drifters in a dead-end banlieu outside Paris, portray the everyday afflictions that the immigrant population deal with. Their awareness of their own marginalisation reaches a climactic boiling point.

I think people often forget about this film because the only thing they remember is the fancy and difficult camera work, and that happened to me to, until I rewatched it yesterday. It's a really complex film because of three main characteres, they function so well together and even tough there's no real conflict between these 3 friends and the riots you can feel the tension in each frame
A nearly flawless "troubled youths" drama garnished with stylish, true-to-life characters. Most of the time it is an incendiary portrait of the violence in France (which is all too appropriate these days), but occasionally it loses sight of reality. The unlikeable thugs clashing with police officers doesn't leave me hating police, it leaves me sympathizing with their hostility. Overall, an incredible debut.
