The Life of Jesus

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

A group of bored, frustrated teenagers spend their time riding motorcycles around a drab city in northern France. They hurl insults at Arab immigrants, harass the weak and listlessly collect welfare. Gang leader Freddy (David Douche) has a crude sexual affair going with local girl Marie (Marjorie Cottreel). When a young Arab named Kader (Kader Chaatouf) expresses interest in Marie and she in turn responds to him, Freddy's gang is outraged, setting off a tragic chain of events.
