Powerful

I did not go to see this little social drama when it was released last year. I think it was underrated by the critics. It reminds me a TV series, aired some years ago, named LA COMMUNE and another one - I don't remember the name and also aired on Canal+ channel. Social and very realistic description of unemployed young Arabs who live in the french suburbs, lost generation ostracized by the racism which slowly push them to the Moslem extremism. This film may be read in many ways. I don't think the french director wanted the audience to think this or that; I guess he wanted this very same audience to think, analyse what really happens. But I also think, and I am afraid of this, that maybe some young Arabs - or may I say Muslims - want to get in war with the society after viewing this feature. Beware before watching this powerful film. I warn vey hard that not anyone has to watch it. It can be pure dynamite.

But it remains a must see. Absolutely.
