Turning the camera away from iconic Paris to the concrete banlieue, Mathieu Kassovitz’s second film as a director changed the cultural landscape of French cinema when it landed at the Cannes Film Festival in 1995, where it won the Best Director prize. Taking place over the 24 hours following the police shooting of a young man, Kassovitz shows the world through the eyes of three friends, Arab, Jew and Black, frustrated at politicians and the media excusing police brutality. The black‐and‐white visuals, thumping hip‐hop soundtrack and graffiti‐lined streets underscore the urgency and rebellion at the heart of this game‐changing classic.

Excellent film, stunningly good transfer

The excellent film tells a story about 3 young guys' lives within a 24hr timeline in the outskirts of Paris after a long night of rioting. It basically shows how terrible living could be in certain area of the city. BFI's remastered blu offers stunningly good looking transfer from a recent 4K restoration. The audio is most excellent as well, personally I prefer the 2.0 option with this film. Studio Canal has released a proper 4K of the film in France, apparently with English subs but I haven't seen it so can't make any comparisons.
