Ladj Ly's debut feature film Les Misérables is less musical than its name suggests... It's a tense little gang thriller set in the modern-day Montfermeil district of Paris, where Victor Hugo's classic novel 'Les Misérables' was written, whose explosive third act feels wholly original and timely.
This year, the Prague French Film Festival boasts a number of titles with both Czech AND English subtitles. From competition films like Cannes hit comedy On a Magical Night to Ladj Ly's visceral Parisian gang thriller Les Misérables, and a retrospective on French auteur Henri-Georges Clouzot. Prague based cinemas Kino Lucerna, Kino Svetozor, Kino 35 and Edison Filmhub will host the festival from November 20th - 27th.
