About this item
Mathieu Kassovitz ("The Crimson Rivers") took the film world by storm with "La haine" (Hate), a gritty, unsettling, and visually explosive look at racial and cultural volatility in modern-day France, specifically the low-income banlieues on Paris's outskirts. Aimlessly passing their days in the concrete environs of their dead-end suburbia, Vinz ("Irreversible's" Vincent Cassel), Hubert ("The Constant Gardener's" Hubert Kounde), and Said ("Three Kings'" Said Taghmaoui) - white, black, and Arab-give human faces to France's immigrant and otherwise marginalized populations, their resentment at their situation simmering until it reaches a boiling point. A work of tough beauty, La haine is a landmark of contemporary French cinema and a gripping reflection of its country's ongoing identity crisis.
