Stephane, only just arrived from Cherbourg, joins the anti-criminality brigade of Montfermeil in a sensitive district of the Paris suburbs. Paired up with Chris and Gwada whose methods are sometimes "special," he rapidly discovers the tensions between the various neighborhood groups. When an arrest starts to get out of hand, a drone is filming every move they make.

Critic Reviews for Les Misérables

All Critics (187) | Top Critics (36)

Fleet of foot and fiery of belly, this new Les Mis is an attention-commanding debut from a filmmaker with a finger on his home town's ever-quickening pulse.

November 22, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It is the most incendiary crime film to emerge from French cinema since Mathieu Kassovitz's La Haine.

September 5, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Ly is a deft orchestrator of story - and chaos.

September 2, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A politically-charged urban western. Will keep an eye out for Ly's follow-up.

September 2, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's inexorable, terrifying, heartbreaking, with a finale that has plenty of weight. Ly's debut reminded me of Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing, made 30 years ago: urgent, provocative, tragic.

August 26, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Its merely plot-driven depictions of its residents converges with Ly's merely functional direction, to flatten "Les Misérables" into the undistinguished style of conventionally apolitical and socially indifferent conventional crime dramas.
