A movie that has more in common with Jean Genet than Frantz Fanon, but there's enough insights into white colonial domination of Arab peoples to make this a cut above the standard prison melodrama. Highly recommended.
That rare film that tries to do too much, yet carries the heavy load of its themes with ease. Audiard dreams big, and his movie is unquestionably a classic crime film, because it transcends all of the conventions of the genre.
Revela-se trágico justamente por refletir uma triste realidade: a de que, antes de funcionar como centro de reabilitação, o sistema penitenciário atua principalmente como uma excepcionalmente perigosa faculdade do crime.
Un intenso, brutal y formidable relato sobre el ascenso criminal dentro de la cárcel como forma de supervivencia. Excepcional labor protagónica del casi debutante Tahar Rahim. No suele abundar cine como éste; el crimen sería perdérselo.
A movie that stands with the best prison thrillers from any country; a film that vividly illustrates the connection between prison and the violent, radical form of Islam that keeps much of Europe on edge.
