Mathieu Kassovitz

Plot Summary

Mathieu Kassovitz took the film world by storm with La haine, a gritty, unsettling, and visually explosive look at the racial and cultural volatility in modern-day France, specifically the low-income banlieue districts on Paris’s outskirts. Aimlessly passing their days in the concrete environs of their dead-end suburbia, Vinz (Vincent Cassel), Hubert (Hubert Koundé), and Saïd (Saïd Taghmaoui)—a Jew, an African, and an Arab—give human faces to France’s immigrant populations, their bristling resentment at their marginalization slowly simmering until it reaches a climactic 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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Writer-director Mathieu Kassovitz mines so much tension and pointed dialogue from a low budget and deceptively simple premise that you wonder why so much of current Hollywood's own social realism ends up shooting $50 million blanks. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Hate is, I suppose, a Generation X film, whatever that means, but more mature and insightful than the American Gen X movies. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: One of the most blisteringly effective pieces of urban cinema ever made – Wendy Ide, Times [UK], Jun 24, 2010
