Storyline

Djamila, Ana Maria, Zoé and the others; Anne, Marta, Pierre and the others ... they all meet in God's offices, or in terms less metaphysical, in the premises of the Family Planning. The former are women or teenage girls who have trouble with their sexual lives; the latter are counselors or medicine doctors, who support and help them when families, partners or even the whole society tend to complicate matters... Written by Guy Bellinger

Les Bureaux de Dieu - companion piece to Entre les murs
17 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Entre les murs" (2008, France) wins prizes at Cannes, and is nominated for a Foreign Language Oscar while not much is heard about the very similar movie, "Les Bureaux de Dieu" (2008, also France). Both films use similar techniques - assigning documentary dialogues to non-actors, and the effect is amazing. You don't know if you're watching a documentary or a feature film! Both movies seems like documentaries, since no rosy solutions are provided to the dramatic problems the teachers/social workers have to deal with. Both films are very talky, with no escape outside the confinement of class room/social services office, but the stories and conflicts presented here are so fascinating, you willingly stay with both films to the end.
