Excerpt: The film serves as both caustic update to Victor Hugo’s monolithic novel and cautionary tale about the future.
Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
Excerpt: Ly had been filming on his own streets since the age of fifteen, supported by the Kourtrajmé collective, so it is notable that while his feature film debut echoes Hugo’s classic for modern times, it is also a fine example of the French policier procedural.

Excerpt: Director Ladj Ly has an artistic eye. I was drawn into the cinéma vérité style — the gritty realism feels authentic.
Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
Excerpt: A sprawling exposé of the universal futility that is our communal inability to escape a cycle of violence bred from a forever-stagnant economic, political & social disparity.
