Laurent Cantet
FRA 2008
128 min

François prepares for a new year at a high school in a tough neighborhood. Neither stuffy nor severe, his extravagant frankness often takes the students by surprise. But his classroom ethics is put to the test when his students begin to challenge his teaching methods. (...) Working from Bégaudeau's book and experience as well as countless workshops with the students, the conversations, banter and occasional outbursts of rage all ring true and are captured by regular Cantet cinematographer Pierre Milon with ease (the entire film was filmed with three cameras rolling at the same time). Like in Ressources humaines, in which factory workers where played by unemployed workers, Cantet again successfully relies on untrained acting talent. (Boyd van Hoeij)

Before the opening film also this year’s trailer Une catastrophe will be screened.
