“Maybe the RN is an experience to try”, Mathieu Kassovitz lets loose live, the TV sequence that everyone is talking about

Mathieu Kassovitz was in his time one of the spearheads of the fight against the extreme right. He was in fact the director of one of the most cult films in French cinema with Hate. Released in 1995, this film traces the journey of three young suburbanites who come to spend an evening in Paris. Their wanderings in the capital are a ode to anti-racism and a denunciation of clichés too often linked to these young people from the suburbs.

The director who was invited to the LCI set made comments that were surprising to say the least and in total contradiction with the work he had offered us 30 years earlier. A media release which caused a lot of talk, not really knowing if it was a provocation to move the lines or a real fed-up.

Mathieu Kassovitz wants to test the French

Asked by the LCI presenter about his vision of the current situation and the very probable arrival in power of the National Rally, Mathieu Kassovitz took everyone wrong-footed by declaring: “I have always been waiting for the National Front to come to power, to see what the real reaction of the French is”.

A posture quite surprising from a man as committed as him : “Are we still the country of human rights or are we something else? Maybe we have become something else and we have to accept that too. Maybe the FN has its place in France, maybe they will do a better job, maybe it’s something to try.”

The shift is inevitable according to the director

The polls are currently very favorable to the right-wing coalition coming to the top. The movement led by Jordan Bardella with the support of Eric Ciotti would indeed win more than 35% of the votes in the first round. Mathieu Kassovitz was therefore asked if he planned to demonstrate against this takeover.

The actor then, as often happens, took an unequivocal position: “I will be with you wholeheartedly, but I’m tired of it, I’m tired of protesting. It’s the same circus all the time. I’m going to get myself into trouble, but I’m not really into protesting. I am for violence in the face of violence.” Before concluding with an almost inevitable situation: “Whether it’s Bardella, Le Pen or someone else, I think that at one point, we will change.”
