For me, Bertrand Tavernier is the greatest French cinema director of the last 30 years. His films always have that real great sense of reality. It's also got creativity and intelligence. As I was watching fragile Nathalie Baye in this film, I was thinking what Hollywood would have done with that kind of story. The teacher will have face adversity and
realise that her duty is to carry on, even if she's not made for this work. It will have violons and tears. Here, Nathalie Baye said no to all that, and we are very happy for her. For 1 hours 45 minutes, Tavernier makes us know the deep feelings of that woman. The logic says she will quit. And so she does and we're happy. Watch good work from veteran comic Michel Galabru, in a serious part.
