The heart is a lonely hunter. (Carson McCullers)
11 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

Merlusse is a teacher whose pupils create mayhem in his class."Merlusse" is a nickname (coming from the word "merluche" =dried cod).He seems harsh and strict ,but under an off-putting manner,he hides real affection for his students.

It's Christmas's night:some of the boarders have gone,but some have got to stay behind the sad walls of a gloomy school.Some will not get a Christmas present.

This Christmas ,however ,will not be like the other ones.

A relatively short movie (For Pagnol whose works' running time generally exceeds two hours)but perhaps his most endearing and moving work.
