  1. Andrew Lang's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

    Pure joy from the first frame to the last. Most of the people in this film are dead, but the picture pulsates with pure life

  2. Richard Tines's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

    last night i listened to a couple chapters of "the gulag archipelago" on Audible, and, in contrast to that slimy police state (particitable by all, dangerous to all), comes this short by the short lived Vigo, a joyous celebration of the victory of freedom...apparently when Vigo died we lost an early, influential technician of benign anarchism...baton passed...l'esprit de Rimbaud est morte! Vivre l'esprit de Rimbaud!

  3. Gabriele Malagoli's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

  4. Ghostman's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

    A highly influential & revered French Classic with deep political and sociological insights to boot but most of all it is a very entertaining film. Jean Vigo was a daring and masterful filmmaker. It is a crying shame that he died so young. What a great picture.

  5. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

    Despite a scrappy structure and scatty content - and years of subsequent derivatives dimming its original charge somewhat - this remains often startling in tone and texture (the slow motion revolutionary parade is poetic). The playfully sceptical view of norms and established institutionalism has a bumptious joie de vivre.

  6. Caitlin's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

    An exuberant, playful, rebellious little film about the anarchic spirit of youth. I laughed out loud several times. It's bold, it's non-conformist, and it's a joy to watch. The pillow fight scene is beautiful. These kids (and Vigo) are waving their middle fingers at the establishment and status quo, and you can't help but love them for it.

  8. Chearth's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

  9. Nolan Barth's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

    This is a charming, delightful and important film that every movie buff should watch at least once in there life! This is an incredibly influential film that takes a lot of risks. You can see traces of this film in everyone from Francois Truffaut to Steven Spielberg! Zero For Conduct's experimental use of slow motion, trick photography and animation is astounding. This film is a cinematic landmark!

  10. susie's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

    Tabard stole the show. I wanted to protect him - reminds me of a young river phoenix with the long hair and his effortless portrayal of boyhood

  13. bagno's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

  14. smndvdcl's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

    Oppressive boarding school context, anarchic pupils rebelling against the system and groundbreaking effects (slow-motion action shots, music played backwards). What's not to love? Vigo's 'L'Atalante' may be his magnum opus, but 'Zero de Conduite' is a riotous mini-masterpiece.

  15. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

  16. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

    This was the Jean Vigo I was hoping for. You can really see the influence on so many films, from If.... to The 400 Blows. Full of whimsy and fun. The film doesn't condemn the children's actions, instead taking part and embracing the freewheeling reckless spirit of childhood.

  17. Ethan's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

    Francois Truffaut and Lindsay Anderson had to have seen this film before they made The 400 Blows and If... respectively. This film is funny and beautiful.

  18. Johnny Fairfax-Lucy's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

  19. Dignan's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

    Chaos without much context.

  20. Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

    There may be better films, but you'll hardly find a movie conceived with more freedom.

  21. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

  22. Kelsey Hill's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

  23. suede's rating of the film Zero For Conduct

    This was dreadful. The absence of any character development or meaningful dialogue, the atrocious sound (even on the Criterion), the incohesive editing, the lack of an engaging story... It didn't seem like a film at all, but rather like a collection of outtakes selected from a disc's bonus menu and played out in one piece. I really wanted to like this, but almost fell asleep twice.
