La Haine: The Criterion Collection

Mathieu Kassovitz took the film world by storm with La Haine, a

gritty, unsettling, and visually explosive look at racial and cultural volatility in modern-day France,

specifically the low-income banlieue on Paris's outskirts. Aimlessly passing their days in the concrete

environs of their dead-end suburbia, Vinz (Vincent Cassel), Hubert (Hubert Kounde), and Saïd (Said Taghmaoui) - a Jew, an African, and Arab-give

human faces to France's immigrant populations, their bristling resentment at their marginalization slowly simmering until it reaches a climactic 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.
