Play trailer

Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche / FR, 2022 / 113 min.

For his film about a gang of robbers from the banlieue who bite off more than they can chew, director Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche was inspired by classic genres such as the heist movie, the revenge thriller and the social-realist drama. With the emphasis on the latter.

poster Le gang des Bois du Temple (Rabah Ameur-Zaïmeche, FR 2022)
They grew up together, friends from a dreary Paris banlieue. One already has a family, another is about to get married. Men at the bottom of the social ladder who hope to get rich overnight. Their target is a car carrying a fortune. The robbery is successful but the owner of the loot, an Arabian prince, is not prepared to let it go so easily and sends his hitmen after the gang.

In Eye and in national cinemas.

Screened at prominent national and international festivals, yet never released in Dutch cinemas. Quite unjustly so, Eye Filmmuseum thinks, and so it has once again brought an exceptional selection of films from international festivals to the Netherlands.
