El Djebena, Malik. #35-114T. How a does a timid boy become a violent gangster? Like this. Sentenced to six years in prison, 19-year-old Malik has his sneakers stolen right off his feet during his first venture into the exercise yard. Caught between the Corsican and Arab-Muslim factions, Malik--a bilingual, French-born Arab and non-observant Muslim--winds up being seen by the Corsicans as an Arab and by the Arabs as a Corsican. To survive, Malik works as an errand boy for the sinister Corsican crime boss who dominates the prison, César Luciani. Malik's intelligence comes to his aid--before long, he can speak to (or eavesdrop on) everyone in the prison. He does what he must to survive, including studying his boss carefully, warily making and then implementing his own plans. When Malik emerges from prison he is a man of the new Europe--albeit a criminal--a polite, industrious, and thoroughly self-made man

Since he was young, salesman Albert Dehousse (Mathieu Kassovitz) wanted to be a hero. Following the liberation of France after the Second World War, Albert leaves his home and wife and sets out for Paris where he befriends a young Captain, Jean Dionnet, and makes the acquaintance of Monsieur Jo (Jean-Louis Trintignant), a collaborator turned Resistance fighter. Albert, already a bit of a fibber, begins his life anew with a fully fabricated identity of a daring Resistance hero, based on library research and the war yarns of Monsieur Jo. But his performance so captivates the French upper crust that she's soon way over his head - and holding a key ambassadorial position. A gently comic take on the human need to reinvent oneself, with the lightest satirical touch
