Une vie violente

Thierry de Peretti França, 2017

Pok's rating of the film A Violent Life

3.5 The best way to radicalize youth? Throw them into prison next to actual radicals, that'll do the job. No matter how pure their intentions, when a group decides to take a life to show how committed they are to the cause, all their lives (and of those around them) are forfeit. Violence has a way to take over, it has a life of its own and, once unleashed, will become chaos until there's nothing left standing.
