France | 2011 | col | dir. Mathieu Kassovitz, with Mathieu Kassovitz, Malik Zidi, Alexandre Steiger, Daniel Martin, Jean-Philippe Puymartin

It’s been almost twenty years now since Mathieu Kassovitz seized attention with his angry, snarling and uncompromising debut La Haine. He’s still as angry in his gritty thriller set in the tropical landscapes of the New Caledonia jungle with distinct shades of Apocalypse Now. A principled police negotiator becomes caught up in a Neo-Caledonian political crisis for emancipation on the eve of France’s 1988 presidential election. Rebellion pairs high-octane action sequences with an intricate plot about the insidious nature of politics. Throughout, Kassovitz confirms his reputation as one of France’s most subtle and sympathetic actors.
