Jean-François Richet's Film is a classic realistic one.
24 October 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This film ( "ma 6-T VA cracker", word to word translation should be "my city's gonna crack" ) is a typical traditional realistic film, meaning not to seem real, but to "print" real. It is shot trough a dialectic materialist point of view. So it imply what this philosophy suppose : the analyse of the violence through the idea of possession and monopole of violence. You will remark, if you are a bit sincere, that when a film shows police officers ( that are represented as heroes or principal characters of the " good side " ) beating " criminals " in insulting them of " scum of society " or things like this, no one in the medias is talking about something like " provocation of hate ", even if it is. Even if Richet made the error ( to me it is an error ), to introduce this clip with red flag and Ak47, because it is a outing of the film, that stays only realistic, and threatening violence as what it is, without making a judgment, elegy or critique, on it. It's only what the last riots in France were : not especially politicized ( even if Richet, and I, I confess, should regret it ), not influenced by religious extremism in its globality, not even ruled by criminal business ( as much independent enquiries proved it, just because the big influence of criminal businesses didn't want general riots and other confrontation with police because it goes against this business ) just young poor enraged people fighting all together against the state, its system and its police even if it has no future, just to express there frustration and rage. In a way, it's like what happened in los Angeles in 1992, even if in France, ethnics are mixed, and so that were not only against racism of the system that french riots happened, but also about poverty ( a lot of the people that were arrested were french and white skincolored. ) In a way, I find that this film of Richet is closer to the realism tradition than " La Haine " ( the hate ) even if this last one is cinematicaly ( i hope this word exist ) better ( better directed ) : but less realistic.
