Synopsis: Released in 1995, "La Haine" is the black and white chronicle of 24 hours in the life of a mixed-race young male trio from a run-down Parisian suburb. The work of a then unknown young team (director and actors were all under 30), it became hugely and unexpectedly successful, launching director Mathieu Kassovitz and lead player Vincent Cassel to stardom.The film's combination of hard-hitting social expose, stylish black and white cinematography and hip-hop culture also turned it into an enduring cult movie with younger viewers. With great style and insight, Ginette Vincendeau provides a thorough understanding of the context of the film's making, its narrative tension, stylistic sophistication and ideological ambiguity and of its extraordinary success nationally and internationally. She thus explains why, out of so many films about disaffected youth, "La Haine" is the one that caught the imagination, becoming an instant classic.

Book Description:

The story behind the surprise success of a young crew’s film of alienation and rebellion

 

Released in 1995, La Haine is a raw, edgy drama about three mixed-race young men from a run-down Parisian suburb who decide to take on the police after a friend is brutally beaten. The work of a then unknown young team (director and actors were all under 30), it became hugely and unexpectedly successful both commercially and critically, launching director Mathieu Kassovitz and lead player Vincent Cassel to stardom. The film’s combination of hard-hitting social exposé, stylish black and white cinematography and hip-hop culture also turned it into an enduring cult movie with younger viewers.

With style and insight, Ginette Vincendeau provides a thorough understanding of the context of the film’s making, both in terms of the film industry and of French society, of the film’s narrative tension, stylistic sophistication and ideological ambiguity, and of its extraordinary success nationally and internationally. She explains why, out of so many films about disaffected youth, La Haine is the one that caught the audience’s imagination, becoming an instant classic.
