A high school student is said to be in the 12th grade. There is no such thing in the French system. In fact, the school doesn't remotely resemble a French high school. In its academics, social structure, cafeteria and even a school paper, it is merely an American high school transplanted to rural France. See more »
Cool black comedy - don't expect anything artful or serious and you're in for a fun ride.
I just watched "The Family" and I for one have had a very good time. This movie is gleefully dark, wickedly funny and offers great acting from all the stars involved, (who really seem to relish their parts). I was shocked when I checked IMDb and found so many comments and reviews from disappointed film fans. How can anyone complain about the violence in this dark comedy and at the same time love films like "Fargo" (or practically anything by the Coen Brothers, for that matter)? I came to the conclusion that the main reason behind all the negative reviews is that people expected something more akin to "Léon", "Goodfellas" or "The Godfather" (where the violence isn't played for laughs), when in fact this is something completely different: This is a black comedy about a group of predators who have to hide among - unbearably arrogant
sheep. You can imagine how well that will turn out (for the sheep).
Anyway, I admit that with other actors involved, this would probably just have been an average mob comedy, but with the kind of talent you get here, it's hard not to have a blast. My rating: 7 out of 10.
