|Both his demon and his salvation in prison is the specter of one of the first people he really got to know during his incarceration||Although he has spent the better part of his life in juvenile detention, this stint is his first in an adult prison|
|The innocent Malik has no idea what to do but cooperate||But this movie is a modern work of art and I adhere to a very strict definition of art and even if you might not "get it" it should be thoroughly enjoyable, the cast does a marvelous job a testament to the director's skill , and it's marvelously shot and cut|
This move does not sit well with the other Corsicans, who only see Malik as a dirty Algerian, and the Muslims who now mistrust him.13
|Yes this movie contains racism and some unpleasant actors, but prisoners usually aren't stand up citizens||He is just hoping to serve his time in peace and without incident, despite having no prospects once he's out of jail since he's illiterate and has no support outside of the prison|
|This is the kind of movie where you can't look away, every scene flows seamlessly into the next|
But I wouldn't dare spoil it for those who haven't seen it yet.
