1h 47m | Action, Drama | 3 April 1985 (France)


A handful of teenagers, boys and girls, escape from a reform school and go round town. They go to a ball, the owner asks them to pay the bill. This man is very unpleasant, he hates the youth of today and he is a racist. The incident turns into free -for-all, then into a massacre. The runaways become chased criminals. One of the boys want to take his mates to a deserted village where they would find a refuge. Policemen and farmers are hot on their heels.

User review:

Those who know current French society and the effects of hooliganism and gangs in cities will find for sure this film a little bit obsolete. And yet it perfectly reflects how uneasy kids were then and how naive adults were face to the rise of juvenile delinquency. Most of Hors La loi takes place in out of time villages or in the far away country, far from the madding crowd… And yet, violence is at the center of the topic. The film depicts the absurd and unavoidable runaway of a group of kids trying to escape adults’ incomprehension. The gap between the innocent adolescents and the unaware adults is wide and grows even wider as the teenagers are losing their innocence. They get involved in murder (self defense actually) and the whole (French) world is tracking them down. Robin Davis, the director, likes his kids a lot, understanding their social and psychological plight. He shoots them seeking a forsaken and uninhabited village, a myth, a legend as the globalization would catch these teenagers back to make them even more violent and dangerous in the nineties. Despite its big budget and very good reviews, Hors la loi was a massive flop in France. The audience wasn’t ready to accept the social disturbance implied by the screenplay. After all La Boum with Sophie Marceau and its party of gleeful kids wasn’t very far behind and comedies are always more entertaining than social dramas. That’s life, and life is far from being wonderful, believe me!

    Hors-la-loi is an absolute “cracker” of a movie. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a movie before in my 53 years on Earth. One surprising scene after the other – a real adrenalin rush.
    The excellent lead actor Clovis Cornillac (playing Roland) went on to become a very well known French actor, who is still in the business today.
