Malik el Djebena, who is condemned to six years in prison, cannot read or write, but soon figures out the politics of the prison. Though Malik is only 19-years-old, the leader of the Corsican gang who rules the prison corners him and gives him certain 'missions' to carry out. He quickly gains the confidence of the gang leader, as these assignments begin to toughen him up. But Malik soon develops some plans of his own.

An interesting look into a French prison. Not the most amazing movie but not bad.

Foreign prison/gangster movie. Very realistic and brutal at times. I wanted to like it more than I did, but something was just missing for me. Felt overlong and underwhelming at times. The acting was pretty good, but there was never really a turning point or a feeling of closure to me. I think there were good concepts that just got lost in the shuffle of too many loose ends and plot points.

This is a great film. It is about a young man who is thrown into jail with nothing and graduates with an education in crime and life. It was a bit long, but kept me engaged the entire time. Great movie.

This movie is fast paced (especially for two and a half hours) and involving. It's well written and executed with great visual flare with some impressive direction. The acting is all top notch, and while this film is very violent it is not hard to watch. Although this one is definitely not for the faint of heart, as it is a very dark and somewhat disturbing tale. I would not compare this to the Godfather franchise in any way as several reviewers have done, but I would recommend this to fans of the Godfather and other gangster movies.

I find that it cannot be compared to the classic "God Father"

Must See – A Prophet (2009) 155 min. Incredibly interesting portrayal of gangster life inside a French prison pitting Middle Eastern Muslims and the Corsican mafia. Our young hero played beautifully by Tahar Rahim elicits our sympathy throughout as he has to do certain things completely against his will. This quality alone sets it apart from other films of this nature. Though realistic and thought provoking, the film also contains some horrific violent scenes; just a warning.
