Getting to Know... La Haine

Ready-to-use research tasks, worksheets, background information and practice exam questions ensure comprehensive understanding of this famous and polemic film directed by Mathieu Kassovitz (1995), which covers important issues such as immigration, life in the banlieues, racism, police brutality and criminality.

out and be fully prepared for the writing exams.
