La Haine / Hate (France, 2005)
La Haine is a powerful movie about the suburbs of Paris. It is a movie that all is about hate among the young people that have no future. This hatred sometimes escalates between policemen and youth like it did again only a few years ago.
La Haine succeeds brilliantly in showing these chaotic suburbs. It is completely shot in black and white, which also adds extra depth to the movie because most of all it is a story about the lower and dark life of a welfaring country. And ofcourse it only can escalate in the end, the first minute you watch this movie you already figure that out.
Maybe not too many things happen in this film, but the scenery is great and in fact the pace isn't slow at all! An outstanding French movie!
