A PROPHET (Un Prophète) Movie Trailer
Check out the trailer for A PROPHET starring Tahar Rahim, Niels Arestrup, Adel Bencherif, Reda Kateb, Hichem Yacoubi, and directed & written by Jacques Audiard.
A Prophet (Un Prophète) was in Cannes this year and won the Grand Prix. It also received some really good reviews and made me quite excited to see what the movie is all about.

A Prophet will be released to theaters in France on August 26, 2009. No US release date as of yet. Watch the trailer below.
