Excellent film about prison life in a French prison, but prisons in the Western world are very similar. Well done in all respects.

Very good movie, Well acted and scripted. If you like gangster or any prison type movies, this is a must see. The movie has subtitles and they are hard to read sometimes from the white coloring of the scene, but the movie flows without them. A little long but I was very happy seeing this flick. true review
