User Review



A terrific drama speaking of the juvenile delinquency, more outstanding than anything I have already seen concerning such a kind of scheme. The young actor, whom I have never heard about before, is absolutely impressive as the lead character and I am sure we will hear of him soon. A great actor who gives us here a powerful performance. And Catherine Deneuve is still a great actress after all these years, and still beautiful too.

Yes, folks, that's really a brutal, violent and sometimes unbearable feature that grabs you, glues you to your seat, and so close to reality.

I highly recommend it.
