Vinz, whose Eastern European family is Jewish, Hubert, who has Caribbean roots, and Said, of North African descent, are all part of France's large immigrant population.

Eddie Godino Profile picture for Eddie Godino

A nuanced look at the problems of policing in mid-90s France from the perspective of three friends, all with different backgrounds and goals, but stuck in the same place and lifestyle. La Haine's message remains chillingly relevant across cultures to this day, making this poignant, impactful film one that everyone should see.
