  1. mootz15's rating of the film French Blood

    This is England set in France and in the 90s when the National Front leadership did not feel any embarrassment about its skinhead street gangs (the main character is one such skinhead). The ending is a bit predictable, a bit too redemptive and cautionary but ultimately sincere and unforced.

  2. choupinet's rating of the film French Blood

    The action and the pacing were just spot on. At first you feel hatred towards the acts of the main character, Marco, but later you learn to pity and admire his strength and courage to pull out of the manipulative environment he once was a part of. Very powerful and highly recommendable movie.

  5. Hans Rudolf's rating of the film French Blood

    Differenzierter, guter und wichtiger Film über ein (leider) aktuelles Thema mit einem grossartigen Alban Lenoir !

  6. Luz Sabina's rating of the film French Blood

    Triste es ver que en corazón de la Europa liberal proliferan los skin junto con ellos los políticos de extrema derecha y los católicos extremos. Igualdad libertad fraternidad.

  7. rociof's rating of the film French Blood

    La destreza de lo infalible. La eternidad de las razas por desaparecer a las otras.

  8. T Mills's rating of the film French Blood

    Great movie. This is does what American History X did only with more subtlety and quiet power.

  9. Kamran's rating of the film French Blood

    Boasting narrative economy and a rich mise-en-scene, French Blood offers a provocative glimpse of restraint. 82/100 - Great.

  10. aaa88's rating of the film French Blood

    A movie where we follow the protagonist growth in a never commonplace or retraced way. The story proceeds inside chronological fragment, put in order, where the protagonist development is gradually shown - almost imperceptibly - without annoying rhetoric or easy morals.

  11. Carmen Munteanu's rating of the film French Blood

    When they say "based on real facts" I usually watch it like a documentary. One destiny. I'm sure that, unfortunately, there are not many like it. Blind rage is almost always a lifetime burden, and almost always exploited by some group of interests; sometimes someone has the chance to find the knowledge, inner strength and right people that help fighting those demons and change.

  12. Padiddle's rating of the film French Blood

    Fantastic portrait of one's man's journey out of hatred. A compelling story that is well acted, well paced and well shot. I highly recommend.

  13. Ritopia's rating of the film French Blood

    The social environment of violent right-wing radicalism is convincingly, although somewhat predictably portrayed. However, the changes in the main character and the way he moves himself away from this environment are dealt with superficially. The overall impression is that the film leaves important questions unsatisfactorily open.

  14. igordobri@me.com's rating of the film French Blood

    really? mmm. Informative to know a bit what is going on in politics today in France and... outside of it's borders increasingly... But as a movie... really? The characters seem to meet quite empty. He is too stoic to believe and his "doctor". Ok a Beautiful man... yes, but not enough for making a movie GOOD.

  16. riraru's rating of the film French Blood

    Was soll das sein? Ein künftiger Kultfilm für Nazis? Gewaltorgien, Hetzerei und zum Ende dann unerklärt die plötzliche Läuterung. "Seht ihr, meine kleinen Hakenkreuz-Schäfchen, wenn ihr aussteigt, seid ihr irgendwann ganz allein!" Tolle Moral von der Geschicht'…

  17. naokoken's rating of the film French Blood

    A glimpse at violence, beliefs and changing as one grows older seen through the eyes of the main character. Not an easy film to watch. No easy answers or conclusions. The film opens, things happen, and then it is over.

  18. mpho3's rating of the film French Blood

    "This is powerful filmmaking, beautifully executed. Un Français is both a compelling look at those forces that drive people into political extremism and an unforgiving portrait of a man who grapples with a world shifting around him." - TIFF.40 Lenoir's masterful performance is particularly horrific for an American viewer as Trump's authoritarian fantasia has opened an apparently long suppressed door of hatred.

  19. msmichel's rating of the film French Blood

    Excellent feature that tackles racism and France's far right through a tale that spans twenty years following a young skinhead through his brutal youth into his more reflective adulthood. Alban Lenoir is magnificent throughout and though the film may often be extreme this portrayal is both raw and mature. Diasteme's direction is top notch even if the viewer needs to fill in the narrative holes at times.

    Basic but very very timely!

  22. FliggityGoogity's rating of the film French Blood

    One of the most disturbing movies I've ever seen, but quite enthralling. Great performances, cinematography, and realism. Great find.

  23. Dogville59's rating of the film French Blood

    It was very hard to like the main characters however it was a well made movie and showed the slow transformation of the main character very well. The message I received via the overheard news broadcasts and the petty lives of the protagonists is that you can't stop change and that that is a good thing.

  24. thivai abhor's rating of the film French Blood

    I will say knowing French and world history does help provide a stronger context for the film's narrative, but don't let that stop you. Is just as important for Americans in understanding/thinking about the rise/progression of the far right. Very dynamic camerawork.
