Story of youth in the Banlieu or slums of Paris
This is a great movie to look at if you are at all interested in how the French culture really operates. The stratification and the problems that many youth face in the banlieues or slums of Paris is really taken to heart and shown as if it were through the eyes every disadvantaged French citizen.
This film addresses key questions: How and why do people turn into criminals? Are these youth involved in a self-fulfilling prophecy? Is the "system" a vicious cycle?
Strongly recommended for the French ethnicity flavor and the culture that most tourists do not see.
