La raison du plus fort

Might is Right
by Patric Jean Documentary Belgio 2002 84'

Instead of fighting against poverty, we fight against the poor. Europe: its rich areas and its poor suburbs where "zero tolerance" is becoming widespread. Where a factory is closed, a prison is built The poor in general and the young im- migrants in particular are the subjects of all fears. The film breaks the clichés and features them in their humaneness, in a cell in jail, in the dock or down in the basement of a settlement, with their emotions, desires, fears and despair. Far away from a concept of European democracy where everyone would have their chance, the film ... calling Belgium and France to witness ... critically and emotionally depicts our society that is often sordid and violent.
