Here is a review of the film.

A Prophet (Un prophete) – a French prison thriller

This French prison melodrama is one of the best I have seen in the last few years. I have had watched the popular TV series Prison Break, but A Prophet from the director Jacques Audiard is all the more engaging and thrilling in its own way. Released in 2009, the film was even nominated to the […]
