An engrossing, well-acted French prison drama about a young Arab in the service of the Corsican mob and the web of deception he creates. Gritty and raw with an edgy look at the forced meldiing of Muslims and ‘French’ in a rigid, correctional setting. Strange, amusingly ‘human’ lil scenes scattered throughout help cut through the bleakness. A solid drama, if you can swallow subtitles on a French/Arab mix. July 16, 2011 at 10:14pm
