A fun and exciting movie with dark and silly humor
Gérard Depardieu stars in this french mixture of comedy and satire.
A mid-age high class teacher's life breaks down on his birthday, when the family finds out about a secret affair, and to be closer to his children he moves to Paris. He moves in to a trash-neighbourhood at the over-wild and rough high school he starts to work in.
This wasn't that funny, just a little twisted. That's the way it is with dark comedies.
An enjoyable film and I give it 7/10
