Looking a lot like a French version of Trailer Park Boys, Porn in the Hood is a crass, but equally hilarious comedy about Momo, Mousten and Abdelkrim, friends since childhood who are looking for easy money that they believe will come from careers in the porn industry. Their only problem is that they need to record demo discs before a local producer will give them their break. With plenty of attention to detail, this film deserves close attention, especially the art and production design which are wonderful complements to the colourful characters that inhabit this sketchy suburb of Paris (Klaus Ming December 2014).
