confrontational
31 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Sonia Bergerac (Isabelle Adjani) is a stressed-out teacher dealing with the aggressive Muslim kids. She confronts Mouss during class and a gun falls out of his backpack. She picks it up and tries to teach Molière while holding the class hostage. Troublemakers Mouss and Sébastien had been picking on Mehmet. The principal had demanded that Sonia stop wearing skirts to appease the aggressive religious crowd and she pointedly refused. She demands a Skirt Day when all the girls wear skirts.

This is quite confrontational and definitely not for the politically correct. There is a battle for the soul of Islam and the movie isn't gentle about the situation. There is an uncomfortable clash of cultures and this dives right into the middle of it. Adjani returns to show her acting prowess. This movie tries to tackle big issues and not everybody will like how it's done.
