Nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award and winner of several Césars and the Jury Prize at Cannes, Les Misérables follows newly recruited anti-crime brigade officer Stéphane (Damien Bonnard) navigating through the tense underworld of the Parisian suburb of Montfermeil. Ladj Ly explores contemporary Montfermeil, the place where, over 150 years ago, Victor Hugo set Les Misérables. Time has gone by and yet, the similarities between today’s angry, hoodie-wearing youth and Gavroche are only too clear.
