« dead poet society » prank (tv)
3 October 2015 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

I know that the 2 movies have more differences than similarities but at the end, the thematic is about the same : a fresh, subversive look about teachers ! Sure, the country are different, the period are different but this kind of movies that focus on teachers and not students, that say that official courses are not suited to needs are really few… Here the subject is dressed in a comedy with some excellent gags and other less funny.. The movie drags a bit and sometimes it's too much to be believable but it has the strong point to be French : if you wonder how was my country, this movie can help you : you can see that public administration has no money in spite of all our taxes : American high schools looks always shining, brand new, here the classroom looks 20 years old ! Then, you can discover that French aren't not prudish as they can get nude naturally ! A the end, this movie is interesting because of its chemistry with those leading teachers : they are engaging and this cast has proved their talent in the later years !
