Movie propaganda

Condemned to six years in prison, Malik El Djebena (Tahar Rahim), part Arab, part Corsican, cannot read or write. Arriving at the jail entirely alone, he appears younger and more fragile than the other convicts. He is 19 years old.

Theatrical report

It seems that Arab-related organised crime is on the increase in France. Those dusky criminals are everywhere. If it's not illegal migration it's running drugs and standover tactics. Racism. Violence. Sounds like Gangs of New York. In France. With French accents. And none of that silly romance stuff. This film is about crime and criminals, not Romeo and Juliet. Go hard or go home.

The crime, drama, France movie A prophet (Un prophète) is directed by Jacques Audiard and stars Tahar Rahim, Niels Arestrup, Giles Cohen.
