''La Haine'' (English: "''Hate''") is a 1995 black and white French movie, directed by Mathieu Kassovitz and set in the modern-day slums at the north of Paris -- more precisely, in [[{{Gangsterland}} Seine-Saint-Denis]], aka "93" or "neuf-trois" from its department number. Centering around a trio of banlieusards, the film follows them through a roughly 24 hour period from the morning after a riot, through run-ins with the police and unreliable fences, a night wandering around central Paris and back home. The three main characters are Vinz, a hot-headed Jew; Saïd, a wisecracking graffiti artist Beur[[note]] The term Beur is slang meaning any French-born descendant of North African immigrants.[[/note]]; and Hubert, the oldest and wisest of the three, who is black. Together, they face prejudice not just because of their races but also because, as banlieusards, they are assumed to be thugs - a reputation they find themselves earning uncomfortably often.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilCounterpart: Both the aggressive plainclothes cop in the woolly hat and Vinz seem to regard each other as being this. They are both always itching for confrontation: the cop can't resist taunting the residents of the estate and has to be continually restrained by his colleagues. [[spoiler: In the end, it's this cop who will accidentally kill Vinz.]]


Added DiffLines:

* RecklessGunUsage: It's this on the part of a cop that ends up killing [[spoiler: Vinz.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheBadGuysAreCops: Played with. All of the police In-Universe are [[BadCopIncompetentCop corrupt, abusive, or just plain useless]], but as Hubert points out, they're not all bad, particularly when in context with the neo-Nazi skinheads that the boys also tussle with. Just as [[PayEvilUntoEvil aspirational cop killer]] Vinz is becoming convinced of this, [[spoiler: he's killed by one.]] Come to your own conclusions.
