Le Prophète (The prophet)
January 1, 2011 - January 6, 2011
Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes, A PROPHET demonstrates Audiard’s ability to rise beyond a genre to exceptional heights of emotional intensity.
Malik (Rahim) lands himself in jail at 19.
After a violent crash course in the ways of the ruling gang, he slowly begins, through his self-education, to challenge the prison power structures.
And as the long years of his sentence roll on, he uses his ruthless cunning to establish himself as a major new player.
A PROPHET moves fluidly from art-house subtlety to genre pyrotechnics in an endlessly powerful and absorbing tapestry of criminal life, which has all the epic human drama of such classics as SCARFACE and THE GODFATHER.
