"It's sad that this movie is still as relevant today as it was when it came out 23 years ago. The black and white really makes this feel dirty and real, like we are there in the projects with the characters. The acting from our leads is great. The cinematography is fantastic. That mirror scene was amazing and I had to watch it a few times just to appreciate it. There are a ton of other cool shots too. That ending still has me shook up."

"Essentially a series of vignettes depicting the aftermath of a riot in a poor housing project in France, this follows three youth over the course of 24 hours. Surprisingly, considering the central characters’ cultural backgrounds, the film doesn’t really explore any racial tensions within the community, preferring to focus on the marginalisation of the people who live in these districts and the tension and distrust that exists between them and the police force. Given the film takes place after a riot, the filmmakers create a tense atmosphere throughout, with a number of confrontations suggesting that violence could break out any minute. This is underscored by three strong central performances, especially a young Vincent Cassel and there is a volatility and barely restrained anger that shines through his performance that helps to build the tension. The film is beautifully shot in black and white that helps to sell the realism it is striving to achieve and given the film was made nearly 20 years ago, it remains as relevant today as it was then, perhaps even more so."

"The 90's true masterpiece. _La Haine_ has become the manifesto of a whole generation of the french lumpenproletariats and it's amazing to see how much little has changed since its release: police brutality spreading wordwide, margining of the poors and whole city districts, with social tensions constantly on the rise."

Filled with a beautiful raw, black and white cinematography and stunning direction, screen-writing, and acting; La Haine is a movie that took me much by amazement.

Matthieu Kassowitz's La Haine (Hate) is a portrait of youth disenfranchisement and the ensuing rage set in the public housing projects outside Paris. Before this film was released, many foreign viewers knew only the well-dressed, white, reserved and educated France depicted in e.g. films of t More
