La Haine

Uber, Said and Vince loiter aimlessly in the courtyards of apartment buildings in the Paris district. Last night they were involved in a riot protesting the brutal beating of a local boy in police custody. The day would change the lives of the trio as the officer reportedly lost his pistol in the protest. Friends indulge in 24 h. odyssey through the streets of a city hostile to them, and the long-spent anger threatens to erupt at any moment. Neapykanta won Best Director at the Cannes Film Festival, and the director's gritty and inventive style inspired a whole wave of urban films in France.
