| Harsh but so true
Zonzon is the slang word for prison.

The movie is a story about little criminals doing time in the inhumane prisons of France and the absence of rehab programs. Violence, harsh language and despair. Real prison life. A must see for prison aficionados.

The plot is not all that complicated. It even seems that the movie never really starts, but please be patient. The actors deliver the underlying stress and the subtle ambiances of prison life. No wonder it got nominated several times (even won a couple of awards). If you can understand French, you should absolutely see this movie in it's original language. French with English subtitles could be a good second choice. Not for the ordinary movie goers.
