La Haine

La Haine (1995): “..but it also confronted me with culture clashes..”

“Whenever people ask me which film I like most it is often La Haine (1995) that comes up in my mind. I first saw the film about 20 years ago when I was 13 or 14. I grew up in Groningen, the Netherlands in a neighborhood that wasn’t that rich, but it varied from low-income families up till some middle-class families. . .
