La Haine

La Haine (French pronunciation: [la ɛn], lit. "Hate") is a 1995 French crime drama film written, co-edited, and directed by Mathieu Kassovitz.[3] It is commonly released under its French title "La Haine", although its U.S. VHS release was titled Hate. Starring Vincent Cassel, Hubert Koundé and Saïd Taghmaoui, the film chronicles a day and night in the lives of three friends from a poor immigrant neighbourhood in the suburbs of Paris. The title derives from a line spoken by one of them, Hubert: "La haine attire la haine!", "hatred breeds hatred". Kassovitz was awarded the Best Director prize at Cannes Film Festival.
