Movies You May Have Missed 034: ‘La Haine’ (MYMHM Recovered)

Mathieu Kassovitz (The Crimson Rivers) took the film world by storm with La haine (Hate), a gritty, unsettling, and visually explosive look at racial and cultural volatility in modern-day France, specifically the low-income banlieues on Paris’s outskirts. Aimlessly passing their days in the concrete environs of their dead-end suburbia, Vinz, Hubert, and Saïd. White, Black, and Arab, they give human faces to France’s immigrant and marginalized populations. Their resentment simmering until it reaches a boiling point. A work of tough beauty, La Haine is a landmark of contemporary French cinema and a gripping reflection of its country’s ongoing identity crisis.
