A stone-cold masterpiece. Manages the difficult task of humanizing its violent, destructive protagonists in the hope of letting us understand, if not sympathize, with their futile youthful rebellion. A dazzling, kinetic style that's married perfectly to it's theme of young, restless anger. But though easy to admire, the film's bleak, harsh perspective makes it hard to love. Deserves much higher but it gets a B+.
'La Haine' is a bold chronicle of the tensions of France throughout the 90's, and even the early 2000's that were still to come, via three young men living in the projects on the Parisian outskirts. Their story is told in less than 24 hours, as they move about their day/night struggling with a number of political and socioeconomic issues, the most central being the brutalization of a friend by French police...↓
Una película energética que muestra el dinamismo entre los tres protagonistas y su entorno, la subcultura del alboroto en los suburbios violentos. Las acciones de los tres muchachos son tan hostiles como lo que les rodea, y a la vez se sienten honestas y puras, como una forma de lidiar con el aburrimiento de su propia realidad
loved the camera work, great performance by the 3 main characters, raw and true portrait about the suburbs combined with extremely beautiful scenes like the Eiffel tower scene! I also liked the lightning through the film and i think kassovitz managed to create such a wonderful sad story with simple means.
This is the movie that got me hoked on french cinema back in the days, and it still packs a hefty punch despite being 17 years old. Everything about this movie if great and still topical. The only downside to this is that the director Kassovitz has not produced anything watchable since then (Crimson Rivers excluded). If you haven´t seen this one, shame on you!
Kassovitz's direction superbly shows the harshness of the Paris housing projects with its stark grittiness. The film does not quite reach gravitas until the harrowing and inevitable finale, but still maintains an ugly realism throughout. La Haine reminds us that French society, and the human race, must regain its footing whenever falling during the darkness of prejudice and bleak social-economic divisions
