‘An explosive slice of life that recalls Do The Right Thing and La Haine. A must see’ - Edgar Wright

To celebrate the Home Entertainment release of Ladj Ly’s explosive directorial debut Les Misérables, The Fan Carpet are giving you the chance to win a copy of the film on DVD, courtesy of Altitude Media Group!

Inspired by the 2005 Paris riots, and Ladj Ly’s short film of the same name, Les Misérables is a hugely topical provocative insight into the tensions between neighbourhood residents and police.

Stéphane (Damien Bonnard) has recently joined the Anti-Crime Squad in Montfermeil, in the suburbs of Paris, France, where, Victor Hugo set his famed novel “Les Misérables”. Alongside his new colleagues Chris (Alexis Manenti) and Gwada (Djebril Zonga) - both experienced members of the team - he quickly discovers tensions running high between local gangs. When the trio finds themselves overrun during the course of an arrest, a drone captures the encounter, threatening to expose the reality of everyday life.
