Storyline

A 15-year-old girl in a black gang in Brussels must choose between loyalty and love when she falls for a Moroccan boy from a rival gang. The city of Brussels, plagued by high rates of youth unemployment, is home to nearly forty street gangs, and the number of young people drawn into the city's gang culture increases each year. It's in this criminal milieu that directing duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah set Black, a pulse-pounding contemporary take on a Shakespearean tragedy. Worlds collide when Mavela (Martha Canga Antonio), a teenage girl with ties to Brussels' Black Bronx gang, meets Marwan (Aboubakr Bensaihi), a member of a rival Moroccan gang, at a police station. Keenly aware of the consequences of getting involved with someone from another gang, they at first resist their attraction to one another, but they can only resist for so long. Just when they've started to imagine a different life for themselves, a terrifying incident reminds Mavela where she belongs - and, more ... Written by KERRI CRADDOCK

Such a lazy writing and such a wrong message ...
14 September 2018 | by wroblewski-radekSee all my reviews

This movie is well shot,I'll give it that. But the rest I hate more the more I think about it. The characters are shallow, everyone's either a sadistic douche or a selfish douche. The script is just another Romeo & Juliet ripoff. And not a very original one. And the message: according to this movie every young black person is a gangster. Not that they don't have aby other options, no. They want to be gangsters, they don't want to integrate into the society - cause they've been born black and they know it's the best life for them. Well, screw that message and screw this movie.
