Winner of the 2010 BAFTA Award for Best Film Not In The English Language.
Gritty, shocking and unforgettable, A Prophet is an epic crime masterpiece that can't be missed. A nineteen-year-old troublemaker starts a six year sentence in a notorious prison, a concrete hell where violence is the only language understood. Taken under the wing of a powerful mafia boss, he is initiated into a vicious and brutal way of life. As the years pass, he proves his worth, moving up the ranks within the prison. However, he has his own plans, and they don't involve taking orders from anyone. Using his ruthless cunning to extend his influence beyond the walls of the jail, he arranges drugs runs, hostage exchanges and violent assassinations. Once merely a petty criminal, he is soon on his way to establishing a criminal empire of his own. Directed by celebrated filmmaker Jacques Audiard (The Beat That My Heart Skipped), A Prophet has become an instant crime classic.
