Why did I decided to pick this one up at my local library? There's so many good movie out there, why settle for a mediocre one? I don't no how to answer that question. In the case of "Le Maître d'école", maybe it's because my wife is a teacher herself.
This is not a movie that you'll fondly remember in a few years times. In fact, you'll probably have forgotten most of it. But still, it's OK to watch, it's enjoyable. Coluche is good as the teacher. The kids are not too over the top. It's an honest comedy, with a certain commentary on the teaching job. But while some scenes are too long or superficial, others are not enough developed.
Seen at home, in Toronto, on March 17th, 2006.
