France is one of the countries in Europe with the highest number of anti-semitism cases This paper discusses the existence of anti-semitism discourse in the film 24 Jours: La Vérité sur l'Affaire Ilan Halimi (2014). The focus of this paper is on the analysis of three narration; Ruth's narration, kidnapper’s narration, and the narration of the police. These three different focalizations reveal the trace of anti-semitism discourse and the power of the media to influence public opinion. Using the concept of Michel Foucault on the discourse of power, the results of the analysis show that in addition to turn Ilan as a martyr of anti-semitism crime in France, the film also becomes a media of criticism to spread anti-semitism discourse by police officers as a strategy to cover their failure in saving Ilan.
