From miserable to unwantedarticle from Geordie Camps and Linnellin Truffaut’s “Cinema Room Paper”: (..) Five years have passed, and the sparks of social unrest do not seem to have dimmed. Quite the opposite, and in France, which is going from bad to worse, and in light of the resolute power of the extreme right that permeates everything, tensions have increased, and the social rift has continued to widen (well, what European country has not been freed from it?). A scenario in which this activist director immerses us again, this time to focus more on the lives of those who live and suffer from difficult conditions on a daily basis, specifically the neighbors of a building suffering from terrible conditions and under constant threat of eviction. With the same fighting spirit, we move from the miserable to the “unwanted” (..). We see how they are threatened with a secret speculative operation aimed at demolishing the property under the pretext of a danger to its residents. How would this happen when an accident occurred that would set off a chain of events that would directly impact the social worker and her best friend; And to the new mayor, the young, idealistic doctor who will soon be dominated by a broken system; And the deputy mayor of this neighborhood who has been moving between the waters for his own benefit for some time. List of characters and facts that Ladj Lee knows intimately, as he explained in interviews, he suffered a similar situation when his apartment was confiscated from his parents after they finished paying for it. That is why he wants to clarify his complaint about the expulsion of the residents of these neighborhoods, and that it all boils down to thinking about how these people live in difficult conditions and die in difficult conditions. (..) It’s a scathing critique of the system, but although there are some good sequences, it’s wasted by a lack of ingenuity and the heavy-handedness of others. Especially those related to Blass, a character whose pessimism leads to violence, and who exudes the pent-up rage of the director behind the camera. On the contrary, we find Al-Habbi, who is very optimistic and combative, the other side of the coin, who still trusts that by fighting from within the system, such as running for elections and seizing power, things can be turned around. “I will be the mayor of the future,” he declared. The doubt we are left with at the end of the film is whether the deeply rooted racial and class problems of society will ever have a solution (..).

The anger of “the suburb” is explained by a director from “the suburb”criticism of Paula Arantzazo RuizIn Ara newspaper: France’s identity crisis and distrust of politicians have long lit a fire in the neighboring country’s suburbs, a magma scene of unrest as evictions, police violence, crime and racism become almost daily occurrences. (..) It seems that Ladj Li wants to impose on himself the task of explaining the drama of the “suburbs”: the problems of these citizens, who are considered second or third class, the frustration of communities with immigrant origins and the anger of the peripheries. Lai practices an aggressive poetics in which tension dominates the stage and it seems that Any item designed to make the story explode at any cost. It doesn’t matter if some decisions affect believability or if the story is clearly Manichaean. (..) In contrast to the effect of his first appearance [“Els miserables”]Everything is bad here, especially since the movie is poorly written. The film is infuriating, but for the wrong reasons.

Cinema “banlieue” by director Ladj Liarticle from Nando’s SalvaIn the newspaper “Periodico”: “Macron was shocked after seeing it, and he told us that he would take action against the poverty and violence that plague these areas,” explains Ladge-Lee of the still-president of France when considering the social impact of his first feature film, “Les Misérables” (2018) ( ..) “But he did nothing. Because there is no political will to improve things. Politicians have failed us. They only serve their own interests. Meanwhile, in Parisian neighbourhoods, at least one young man is murdered every month. And the deaths will not stop. “That’s why I obviously have to keep talking about what’s going on there,” the director explains, his words as resounding as his cinema. (..) “When I started writing Les Miserables, I conceived it as the first part of a trilogy about the history of the neighborhood where I live, Montfermeil,” he explains to me. “The goal is to cover 30 years: this film is set in the current era, ‘The Undesirables’ is set around 2005, and the third film will be set in the 1990s.” (..) Mostly the situations he raises are based on real events. “It’s all inspired by people I know; my parents were forced to vacate their house when I was about 20, and in return they were given about €15,000 and defrauded,” Lee recalls. “I started out as a documentary novelist, and I can’t get away Completely about him. For me, the camera is a weapon, or at least a tool with which I try to change things.” (..) He recently co-wrote “Athena” (2022), the latest film as director from Gavras – son of director Costa-Gavras – and is another thrilling story of suburban violence. He admits that his cinema has not all this time effectively helped the situation and points out that “a large part of the problem is the result of the wound opened during colonialism and post-colonialism, which has not yet closed. The problem with France is that it does not want to acknowledge its past. As long as they continue not to take responsibility, things will not be resolved.” He adds, however, that he has not lost his motivation at all. “I can’t stand it. He may have wanted to grow up in a rich neighborhood, but that was not the case. I have a battle to fight, and I will fight it no matter what. “I am part of the first generation of Malians to arrive in France, and we must ensure a real possibility of integration for our children” (..).
