Tony Montana não é páreo para Um Profeta.

10 years, 3 months ago at Jul 21 13:36
Um drama prisional elaboradamente delineado numa França contemporânea onde novas leis do governo Sarkozy acerca da repatriação de prisioneiros tem impacto direto no rumo das personagens. O protagonista, Malik El Djebena, órfão francês de origem árabe condenado a seis anos de prisão, o motivo pelo qual entrou é irrelevante, “Un Prophète”(2009) irá revelar os fatores definitivos num ... read more

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

A great movie

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this flick, I was really so eager to see it. Well, I wasn't disappointed, that's for sure. Indeed, it was pretty much a masterpiece and easily one of the best French movies I have seen during the last 10 years. I was already impressed by Audiard's previous directing effort, 'De battre mon coeur s'est arrêté', but this movie was even better. Basi... read more
View all A Prophet reviews
Condemned to six years in prison, Malik El Djebena cannot read not write. Arriving at the jail entirely alone, he appears younger and more fragile than the other convicts. He is 19 years old. Cornered by the leader of the Corsican gang who rules the prison, he is given a number of “missions” to carry out, toughening him up and gaining the gang leader’s confidence in the process. But Malik is brave and a fast learner, daring to secretly develop his own plans.

2020: Others (277 movies items)

"Davvero ammirevole questo film di formazione in ambiente carcerario: il giovane Malik solo la prigione conosce e lì fa carriera voltando abilmente a proprio favore i contrasti tra le varie correnti mafiose (i corsi, gli italiani, gli arabi). Ne esce un noir cupo e gelido (gli scoppi di violenza sono pochissimi) guidato da un'attenta costruzione dei caratteri in cui brillano le interpretazioni di Tahar Rahim e Niels Arestrup: fra le mura, il potere dei loro personaggi si trasferisce ineluttabile"
