Winner of the Cannes Jury Prize, this thrilling, explosive feature debut takes us into Paris’s diverse and tense outer suburbs as a routine police patrol goes horribly wrong.
Stéphane (Damien Bonnard) has recently joined the Anti-Crime Squad in Montfermeil, in the suburbs of Paris, where Victor Hugo set his famed novel Les Miserables. Alongside his new colleagues Chris (Alexis Manenti) and Gwada (Djebril Zonga) – both experienced members of the team – he quickly discovers tensions are running high between local gangs. When the trio finds themselves overrun during the course of an arrest, a drone captures the encounter, threatening to expose the reality of everyday life. Inspired by the 2005 Paris riots, and director Ladj Ly’s short film of the same name, Les Misérables is a thrilling and provocative insight into the fractures in contemporary France.
A restless portrait of urban tensions...brilliant on power dynamics.
