Based on real events, La Haine follows on three friends over the course of one day in the housing projects of Paris, in the aftermath of a riot. With tension in the air and the police on constant surveillance, it’s not long before prejudice and hostility turn to violence, with tragic consequences.
Re-released and restored in stunning 4K for it’s 25th anniversary, Mathieu Kassovitz’s razor sharp film remains as breathtakingly fresh as it did when it first hit cinemas.
