One of the best available films on "la banlieue",
29 August 2009 | by (Capital, Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

Great "social cinema". Just narrating the facts, neither glorifying nor condemning the characters, just the facts.

Beautiful urban views, then make nice what it's not. The sparsely used classical score only underlines part of what is missing. Music itself is very well chosen, it goes very well with the mood.

Violence is there. Real, without much "sense" or "meaning". Mistakes are made, thiefs are stolen, the public/ "the people" is dumb buy sympa. Thierry and Berenice are great supporting actors. It's no wonder that "Jose" also wrote AND directed it! "Bagnolet" should be part of city tours, so that us naive tourists don't believe Paris is only the shiny spots :).

Barthélemy looks the part. He reminds me of an Argentine actor, Rodrigo De la Serna, in "Okupas", another (very) gritty story. Both actors aren't big and mean in the American sense. They look desperate, their empty stare tells you they could do whatever, because they stopped caring. Whether it's "nature or culture" is up to the viewer to decide.
