A Prophet Synopsis

Sentenced to six years in prison, Malik El Djebena (Tahar Rahim) is alone in the world and can neither read nor write. On his arrival at the prison, he seems younger and more brittle than the others detained there. At once he falls under the sway of a group of Corsicans who enforce their rule in the prison. As the 'missions' go by, he toughens himself and wins the confidence of the Corsican group.

  • Ah, the movie that revealed Tahar Rahim. A marvelous French actor of Maghreb origin. After this movie, he won lots of prize such as the César of best actor. Since then, he is not limited to typical Arabic character anymore, as we have seen him in the movie "Le Passé".
