Tahar Rahim is mesmerizing in this breakout role. I loved this movie, so gritty, and yet Tahar brings a degree of humanity to his role.
Action, acting, storyline: all five stars
A dense experience. My love for Audiard deepens with A Prophet, a subtly subversive gangster flick and character study.
We witness the intricacies of criminal networks and the people swallowed up or thrashing for survival in this morally bereft system. It's comprised of story beats we've seen before, but in a more detailed, less melodramatic fashion. The prison setting is not a hindrance but a claustrophobic lair where degenerates operate "within the law."
this movie was dope. Lotta hustling in prison, and main lead is an Arab, but the movie doesn't lecture us about religious tolerance, etc but we begin to respect Muslim religion and idea of brotherhood toward the end.
When he walks out of the prison at the end of the movie, walking with the mother and son of his dead friend, followed by the limos, you know you've just watched a classic movie.
A nominee in the category of Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars and the Golden Globes that reverberates with tenderhearted muscularity in chronicling the survival story of a young petty criminal in the hellacious Darwinian world behind bars.
Un Prophète s'avère une merveille tant par son acteur principal que l'attention porter au scénario. Un "must" pour n'importe quel amateur de films de "gangsters"
Great lead performance by Rahim as a man that must evolve and fulfill a dark destiny in an environment rarely seen in cinema. Audiard delivers a detailed social commentary on race/ethnicity, poverty and prison life and an original gangster coming-of-age film.
making humannwyhy there isnt movie like this
