Mini Review - A Prophet
- Written by Matthew Toomey
A Prophet (out now) is largely set in a French prison and is about a young Arab man who becomes close with an ageing Mafia boss and uses it to his advantage. Very violent in places, it won the runner-up prize at Cannes and has been nominated for best foreign language film at the Oscars. A little long and not quite as good as I hoped. Grade: B.
