La Haine is a series of unexpected albeit never boring events during a 24 hour period where three characters that reflect the three different types of people seen in the banlieues. With Said being a follower, a sort of sheep. With Hubert being a wiser man who wants to get out of the life, and in contrast Vinz whose fueled with pride and ego, a man so controlled and buried under the perdition of the tough streets of France. All three explore the streets in what seems to be a traditionally perpetual day, and yet all are going to change during the film. La Haine is flawless in its writing, flawless in its dialogue and flawless in getting its beautiful, powerful message through. All three actors perform amazingly well, with Vincent Cassel giving an Oscar Worthy performance.
