Music Millennium

Mathieu Kassovitz (The Crimson Rivers) took the film world by storm with La haine (Hate), a gritty, unsettling, and visually explosive look at racial and cultural volatility in modern-day France, specifically the low-income banlieues on Paris's outskirts. Aimlessly passing their days in the concrete environs of their dead-end suburbia, Vinz (Irreversible's Vincent Cassel), Hubert (The Constant Gardener's Hubert Kound), and Sad (Three Kings' Sad Taghmaoui) - white, black, and Arab - give human faces to France's immigrant and otherwise marginalized populations, their resentment at their situation simmering until it reaches a boiling point.
