La Haine is seriously over the top

5 second plot: We follow three young guys living in the not so friendly suburbs of Paris over the course of their day: hanging out, having fun, bothering other people and getting their asses kicked (mainly by the police). One of them found a gun the previous day. That's asking for trouble, of course.

5 second review: This movie is really low budget, but nicely done. Very funny at times. And also a reality check: hate only creates more hate is the central message. But the madly over the top acting got on my nerves. Or is this simply that sometimes annoying French energy bursting out.

IMDb score: 8,1/10
