La Haine

La Haine

Regarded as one of the most searing French films of all time, La  Haine, has never lost the incredible relevancy, which saw it launch to a prolonged ovation at Cannes (winner Best Director) before going through French cultural complacency like a wrecking ball.. A story of injustice and alienation, La Haine is set over 19 consecutive hours in the lives of three young adults living in the impoverished, multi-ethnic French projects. The urban realism is heightened by the black and white cinematography.
