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

I thought it was wonderful. Saw it in Telluride.

Uncompromising in its style, story and characterizations. Full Review

Audiard delivers on and exceeds the promise he evinced in that earlier film, drawing viewers into the densely layered, ruthless ecology of a French prison and, against all odds, making them not mind staying there awhile. Full Review

USA Today
A compelling piece of naturalistic filmmaking, claustrophobic and thought-provoking. Full Review

To borrow a marketing phrase from another, very different film, A Prophet really is the movie that reminds you why you love the movies. Especially movies like this one. Full Review
