Vincent Cassel
31 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a great story. An apparently very rich family living in a luxurious French manor, hire a tutor for their son who is a genius..... I was about to divulge too much about that movie and eventually kill the suspense for you... Incredible actors and great subject. I saw Vincent Cassel for the first time in "La Haine". I live in Los Angeles and I did not know that Vincent was the son of Jean Pierre Cassel. In "la Haine", I thought that Vincent Cassel was not a professional actor but a real gang member who had been hired to play in "la Haine" and would never be seen in another movie.(he was excellent too) When I saw L'Eleve and recognized Vincent Cassel as the main actor I could not believe he was the same actor than the one in "La Haine". What a performance. What a great actor!!! More than real as a gang member in "La Haine" and absolutely convincing as a well educated tutor in "l'eleve"
