A fascinating film from a British perspective, due to the insight it gives into the French school system. Cantet elicits some fine, natural performances from the students in the film. It effectively offers a complex portrait of inner-city Parisian racial cross-currents. The ending had much of the quiet anger of a film like THE VISITOR, with the school system itself being questioned as to it's efficacy and relevance.
IMMIGRATION Part 4. Pauvre - et bientôt inexistante - France ... profs timorés et lèche-culs à l'image de nos politiciens, lâcheté sous couvert de bien-pensance, laxisme, combat d'arrière-garde, renoncement & soumission devant l'arrogance, l'insolente vigueur de populations en terrain conquis, qui dès leur plus jeune âge n'ont que mépris pour notre société qui s'agenouille sans résistance ...
Probably the best example of the advantages of improvisation: set up a camera and let it run. A very credible and authentic film. Also interesting to see the French problem from a different angle: by law the kids are as French as the teacher, but they don't want to be French. They do everything to fight for their own identity. For me, the film is a very good contribution to see the complexity of social structures.
