There is no way anyone who hasn't grown up in France can understand the nuances this film offers. So much is in the language and in the delivery that you can't understand through subtitles.
Having grown up in the 20eme of Paris, the slang and accents hit home and truly carries this amazing film.
If you think these kids are trying too hard, it's cuz you don't have the perspective of where these kids come from. Everything in this film is genuine and true to the way minorities communicate in the inner cities of France.
If you care about French film, this is indispensable.
