Oustanding film, 2 May 2012
This is an outstanding film. It is extremely funny and in part very exciting. It begins with a really amazing sequence of high speed driving, through the tunnels of the periferique in Parisat night. The contrast between the lives of black immigrants living in the banlieue and the very priviledged white upper class in a chic area of Paris was quite shocking. Yet the combination of poverty and strength combined with money and physical frailty was one of its greatest features.
This film is about diability but it is in no way patronising, mawkish or depressing.
I have only seen it dubbed into Spanish and I am really looking forward to seeing it again in the original.
