    While to most outsiders Paris seems the very picture of beauty and civility, France has had a long and unfortunate history of intolerance toward outsiders, and this powerful drama from filmmaker Mathieu Kassovitz takes an unblinking look at a racially diverse group of young people trapped in the Parisian economic and social underclass. Vinz (Vincent Cassel), who is Jewish, Hubert (Hubert Koundé), who is Black, and Saïd (Saïd Taghmaoui), who is Arabic, are young men from the lower rungs of the French economic ladder; they have no jobs, few prospects, and no productive way to spend their time. They hang out and wander the streets as a way of filling their days and are sometimes caught up in frequent skirmishes between the police and other disaffected youth. One day, a street riot breaks out after police seriously injure an Arab student; the three friends are arrested and questioned, and it is learned that a policeman lost a gun in the chaos. However, what they don’t know is that Vinz picked it up and has it in his possession, and when Vinz, Hubert, and Saïd get into a scuffle with a group of racist skinheads, the circumstances seem poised for tragedy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best film I've ever seen I watch so many films it's unhealthy, and this one was a clear standout for me. It's fantastic. If you like plain enjoyable films and don't care about artsy stuff you'll love. If you're like me and love all that artsy stuff you'll love this too. Crazy good, can't recommend it more.
