Today, I'm not an "expert" of the work of Mr. Bertrand Tavernier. But this movie gave me a great desire to be more interested in his work.
It's a very good film about the questions, doubts, fears, anxieties that adults can feel socially and in particular through the role of Miss Laurence Cuers (Nathalie Baye), young teachers. Besides this social and depressive anxiety feeling that emerges, the film criticizes the French National Education, which thirty years later, has the same fundamental flaws by the national education process itself and even the general contemporary cultural environment, which on this point, if I allow myself, get worse.
A beautiful story and a great accomplishment captivate us throughout the film, helped by a distribution well served by Nathalie Baye and Gerard Lanvin and energized by Michel Galabru and Philippe Noiret. And the action take place in Lyon (France) is often nice to see another town than Paris in the French cinema.
A good film very interesting and rewarding.
