Watched this on holiday in France and it really took me by surprise as I could not read the cover on the DVD but it did have English sub-titles and that was good enough for me. Without giving the plot away, it is a brutal film and very realistic, the acting is some of the best I have seen, the storyline has many twists and turns and keeps your interest throughout the film. The family concerned in the film are a typical multi ethnic family living in the suburbs of Paris, poor but have a strong family bond. The story basically starts off when one of the brothers visited by an old rival from the past which sets off a chain of events which gets more and more catastrophic as the film goes on, different cultures clash head on. As I said this is a brilliant film and I highly recommend it, but it is brutal and the realism will startle you. Top film!
