Un Prophete trailer

UN PROPHETE is riding high off a massive tidal wave of buzz following its appearance at Cannes, where many thought it was in fact that best film of the event, and it's already French's entry into the 2010 Oscar race. It’s directed by Jacques Audiard and the official synopsis is as follows:

Condemned to six years in prison, Malik El Djebena cannot read not write. Arriving at the jail entirely alone, he appears younger and more fragile than the other convicts. He is 19 years old. Cornered by the leader of the Corsican gang who rules the prison, he is given a number of missions to carry out, toughening him up and gaining the gang leaders confidence in the process. But Malik is brave and a fast learner, daring to secretly develop his own plans.

There’s nothing particularly mind-blowing about the trailer, but due to the deafening hype I’m certainly interested in seeing it pronto. The film has been picked up by Sony, and I'm told will be opening in limited release on February 26th, 2010.
