Every French users of this board must have seen it, including me. The kids were great, I loved it when I saw it but afterwards I thought more about it. In a way, it’s too exagerated : the teacher is too nice, too understanding, the kids are supposed to be rebels but they still ask questions, show some interest. Believe me, I’m working with kids as a monitor, or whatever it’s called, at a secondary school and real rebels or kids with difficulties don’t make such efforts. Also, I’m always a bit suspicious with that specific kind of movies which raise serious issues, don’t conclude on a position but just open the discussions. There have been a lot of articles and essays about the movie, and in a way, the movie is just a pretext to open the discussion in society, since the book hasn’t made such a buzz (but still was acclaimed).
Anyway, I liked the movie, ahah. I’m just picky with such movies.
