Malik's «Un Prophete» is a special case. Why start from point zero. Tucked in jail empty and uneducated, an 'astray' boy, a hooligan who has the most unfortunate. And out of jail ... Don Corleone! The foundation says Audiard, who would serve as prisons, which should be smoothly integrates the black sheep in the herd, it works as a school illegal.

A pesar de sus dos horas y media de duración esta película no se siente larga gracias a lo ágil y concreto de la narración, la historia aquí contada bien pudo haber necesitado una hora más y tener muchas menos escenas sobresalientes si se hubiera hecho cargo otro director.
Entre las actuaciones destacan la de Tahar Rahim quien se desenvuelve con bastante fluidez en su papel y la de Ni... read more

"June 2nd Directed by: Jacques Audiard A Prophet: the story of the luckiest man to ever go to prison. No point in getting into that, it would just be nitpicking, what I mean is everything that happens in the story is unbelievably convenient. I was actually enjoying myself for the first 30 - 40 minutes or so, despite the film doing nothing interesting as a visual medium, it was just a good story. Until it stopped being a good story, then I don't know what it was except for a bore. In one word: b"

"French prison is like a 5 star hotel compared to prisons in our country. 6 years for attacking a police? that's pretty harsh. Anyway this movie is great, quite long but still enjoyable. A Muslim outsider that slowly gaining power in his own way. "

"August 5 "If you can walk around this place, it's because I had you made porter. If you eat, it's thanks to me. If you dream, think, live... it's thanks to me!" This was an amazing foreign movie. I got lost in the dialogue and the characters were also great too. Definitely one of the best prison movies."
