Jacques Audiard’s (The Beat that My Heart Skipped) new film A Prophet captivated audiences at Cannes and seized the Grand Prize with both its poetic and raw aesthetic. Ferocious and compassionate, A Prophet follows the descent of a young man into the hierarchies of the criminal underworld. Sentenced to six years in prison, nineteen-year-old French-Arab Malik El Djebena (Rahim) is approached by the leader of a Corsican gang, Cesar Luciani(Niels Arestrup), who operates their criminal activities from inside his cell. After a violent initiation, Malik is forced to adapt to the rules of the clashing criminal factions within the prison. However, over time a period of time, he steadily builds up a power structure of his own. With A Prophet writer-director Audiard confirms himself as a stand out talent in world cinema and has produced one of the most exciting crime dramas of the year.
