Partly inspired by the violence that erupted in the Paris suburbs in 2005, three cops struggling to keep peace among warring factions in one neighborhood make an arrest that threatens to set off an all-out war. In this electrifying thriller, the strife in the streets is mirrored by the venomous dislike the cops express for one another. Nominated for the Palme d’Or and winner of the Jury Prize at Cannes.
