La haine / Hate (1995, Matthieu Kassovitz) - opening sequence analysis

As part two of my review of La haine, I've decided to focus on the opening 10 minutes because I think one of the key strengths of the film is in how it establishes a genuine sense of empathy with its characters, who prior to the release of this film were considered unwanted members of French society, and still are today.
