La Haine (2-disc Blu-ray)

Simmering hostility and prejudices boil over in Mathieu Kassovitz's provocative and compelling portrait of a Parisian housing project

Set in the aftermath of a riot, three friends Vinz (Vincent Cassell), Hubert (Hubert Kounde) and Said (Said Taghmaoui) trapped by their economic, ethnic and community circumstances, navigate the escalating urban discontent. But, with tensions still high and the threat of violence ever-present, the trio drift towards an increasingly dangerous destiny.

Newly restored in 4K, La Haine's scalding take on France's social divide still carries a knockout punch. Beautifully shot in black and white by Pierre Aim, this mid-1990s landmark remains as fresh and relevant 25 years on from its original release.

Special Features:

  • To Be Confirmed
  • ***FIRST PRESSING ONLY*** Illustrated booklet with new essays
