All over France, there are still examples of what are known as single-class schools that bring together all the children of a village around one teacher, from kindergarten to the last year of primary school. Between isolation and opening up to the world, these eclectic little groups share everyday life, for better and for worse. Nicolas Philibert, one of Frances most distinguished documentary filmmakers, with a keen eye for human nature, shot this fascinating film in one of them, somewhere in the heart of the Auvergne, between December 2000 and June 2001.
