The testosterone kids
4 November 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Such a lot of yelling and screaming to so little effect: that's what we have in Métisse, a dry run for La Haine which appeared a couple of years later. Same three actors--Kassovitz, Koundé and Cassel--joined by a gorgeous woman named Julie Mauduech, and the same racial and religious strife that I found so tiresome in the latter film. I don't need to be hit over the head by the dialog, I get it.

Lola is pregnant, and keeping Jamal and Felix on tenterhooks as they try to guess who the father is. The comic moments, as the director tried to set them up, are just not funny. Only Julie Mauduech, who reminds me a little of Dorothy Dandridge at times, and Gauguin's Tahitian women too, is worth watching.
