A major film to understand the French youngsters despair.
I guess this movie won't get the notoriety spread that Mathieu Kassovitz' LA HAINE or Jean-François Richet's MA 6T VA CRAQUER, knew twenty years ago. Important films which talked about the wrath in the suburbs, the ravages of poverty and the devastating impact that all the drug use, racism and unemployment had on the people, especially the youngsters. This very movie is shot in black & white, to emphasize on the atmosphere of the whole story. So were LA HAINE or the previous film Jean-François Richet made just before MA 6T...( Please check on IMDb, I don't remember the title. Sorry)
This movie doesn't only talk of violence or delinquency but also of all the numerous efforts that some social folks do to enhance the suburbs population to finally emerge from their abyssal dive into the nothingness. The characterization is so realistic, so close to authentic situations. I guess the actors hired for this feature were true folks from the suburbs.
I will finish by saying that this film may not be as pessimistic as LA HAINE.
