Another prison movie..
19 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

"Zonzon" means "Prison" .This is a movie which takes place in jail and one cannot say it renews a genre which has produced few masterpieces ("Le trou' by Jacques Becker) .There's the obligatory violent scene in the showers ,there's the obligatory body search and the obligatory beating up,there are the obligatory nasty wardens,there's the obligatory dope the inmates smoke every day,there's ...you name it.

Considering the limitations they are working under,the good cast ,particularly Jamel Debouzze and Pascal Greggory ,give their characters substance and prove that they would have deserved a better script and a better director.Best scene is Greggory's wife's visit:"Mum,when shall we leave?" the boring (and probably ashamed)prisoner's child asks.
