"Les Miserables", Ladj Ly hoists the suburbs at the height of Cannes


This is the first film in the running for the Palme d'Or that sparked enthusiasm at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. With Les Misérables, the French director Ladj Ly renews the genre of suburban films, 24 years after Mathieu's Hate Kassovitz. At the time, the film gave new life to French cinema, but did not change the fate of commuters. Fourteen years after the riots of 2005 that boosted his desire to become "the man with the camera", Ladj Ly films in its turn the violence and the misery, but especially the human beings in a difficult district in the suburbs.
