Do you sometime think life has gone a bit flat? Have you ever said to yourself that things are going so badly it couldn't get any worse? Have you ever tried to catch your own shadow? If the answer is yes, then you are ripe for The Furious Force of Rhymes. In this documentary, dissatisfaction and frustration are not vented in violence but in song and dance. This documentary shows how the oppressed found a way to share their feelings with the whole world. It is a documentary that tries to understand their common language - hip hop. This provocative film reveals how a single genre of music connects people as diverse as American blacks, East German skinheads, Israeli Jews, Palestinians, African feminists and French Banlieusards. This stirring chronicle of people who would not let their bitter fate break them uses the same language as its protagonists to tell its story. The result is an impressive musical road movie, which cuts across continents and time to deliver the same message of hope and desire for reconciliation.
