Acclaimed French Drama LA HAINE Returns to Cinemas - New Trailer and Poster

la haine
Mathieu Kassovitz’s film celebrates its 25th anniversary with a new 4K restoration.


With urban unrest growing in cities around the world and France having seen ongoing riots for close to every weekend of the past year, the themes of Mathieu Kassovitz's 1995 film La Haine have proved timeless.

The film follows three young friends (Vincent Cassel, Hubert Koundé, Saïd Taghmaoui) from differing cultural backgrounds over the course of a tumultuous day in Paris.

Newly restored in 4K, La Haine will play in UK cinemas from September 11th, with a blu-ray release on November 16th.

Check out the new trailer, poster and official synopsis below.

The official synopsis reads:

LA HAINE stars Vincent Cassel (Black Swan, Irreversible) as Vinz, who is Jewish, Hubert Koundé (The Constant Gardener) as Hubert, a black boxer, and Saïd Taghmaoui (Wonder Woman) as Saïd, a young Arab; three friends in an immigrant community who mooch around a rundown banlieue in the Paris suburbs. The action takes place over the course of one day in the aftermath of riots that erupted as a consequence of an attack on a friend by police. With tension rapidly building and the police out on surveillance on the streets of the banlieue, prejudice and hostility inevitably brings about violence.
