The Substitute

Il supplente

Directed by Andrea Jublin
Italy, 2006
Short, Comedy


Why does the supply teacher, rather than teaching, behave as he does?
A comedy about the teen world and the existential confusion of grown-up people. A film about nostalgia for youth and the virtues of courage. It’s never too late to oppose a dull life.
