    They were showing this gem at the Alliance Francaise in S.F. So now I'm asking to all of you, WHY CAN'T TODAY'S GANGSTER MOVIE BE MORE LIKE THIS?
    Seriously, this movie's awesome! It's scary, it's shocking, it's funny and it's revolting. A must see movie before you die!

    Plot: Three youth living in the projects near Paris decides to hang out for the day after a violent riot broke out. Their friend is in a coma and dying, the cop are anxious over a gun they lost last night and the greatest debate in movie history: Live and let hate or live in it?
    Directed by Mathieu Kassovitz staring Vincent Cassel, Hubert Koundé, Saí¯d Taghmaoui and a Smith and Wesson Magnum .42... also a cow somewhere...

    Vincent Cassel? I am so watching this, I love that crazy bastard. I loved him in Eastern Promises, among others.

    Did you know he's married to Italian beauty and acting talent Monica Bellucci? Lucky bastard.

    Now that i think about it, his role in Eastern promises looks a like like his role in La haine.
    That must be why he was picked for it.

    I see. Well, I just "got" the movie. I might watch it later or tomorrow, I'll let you know what I think. It seems tight.

    Whoho! Glad you liked it!
    My favorite scene, when the old man pops out of nowhere and tells the story of how his friend almost missed the train because he had to take a sh**.

    so is this movie 3 parts drama, 1 part gang violence? that's cool. looks like a good drama.
    but that really wasn't so violent, not that it had to be.

    lol true
    But the clip you posted piqued my interests. Looks like a great story too.
    The guy who played Kirill in Eastern Promises sure has a knack for playing the crazies, huh.

    Menace II Society was tight. So was Boyz N The Hood. I prefer the 2nd one.
