France 1995
Dir Mathieu Kassovitz
With Vincent Cassel, Hubert Koundé, Saïd Taghmaoui
English subtitles
Certificate 15

Chronicling 20 hours in the aftermath of a riot in suburban Paris, Kassovitz’s debut feature follows three twenty-something men who are seething with rage and discontent at their place in life. La Haine presented a Paris riddled with police brutality, racism, hostility and violence: this is not what French cinema at the time looked like, and it blew critics and audiences away.
