I know this film has been mentioned a couple times, but I just watched this movie and I must say, i think NT will love this. If you are looking for a great prison crime/gangster story that goes even a little deeper dealing with race, culture, etc. this movie will satisfy. There's been a lot of comparisons to THE GODFATHER (its 2 1/2 hrs) but i'd say it's more OZ meets the GODFATHER II DeNiro storyline - it's a coming of age story of an arab thug kid in a french prison who gets mixed up with a mafia boss inside.
HIGHLY recommend this movie, I was able to find a DVD quality with english subs and it's currently in theaters in NYC. It is the french selection at the Oscars for Best Foreign Film. Here's a trailer:
