La Haine

Mathieu Kassovitz's La Haine (Hate) is a story of three young male immigrants living in a multi-ethnic council estate. The film details 19 hours in the lives of Vinz, Sayid and Hubert, all of whom are badly shaken by a riot which leaves their friend, Abdel, in a coma after being brutalised by police. Vinz discovers a policeman’s revolver dropped in the midst of the action and vows to use it to kill a cop; his personal revenge mission tells the story of ongoing mutual hatred between local youth and local law enforcement which manifests itself throughout displays of racial profiling, unapologetic discrimination and excessive force of the openly racist officers.
