Could have been much better
7 October 2015 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This movie deals with a way a teacher uses to get interest and uprise its multicultural children's. There is nothing new in that and this method has been used by thousands of dedicated teachers for a thousand years, probably since the invention of school by Charlemagnes. Everyone can tell of teacher that specially impressed us for their ability to arouse curiosity. Now this could have been filmed in half the lenght, and stripped of some subtle side messages such as its bias against religions. There is a "secular republic against fanaticism" moralism in there that is heavy in the end, that is not balanced and do not answer questions (such as the fact that Nazis were primarily pagans). A mixed bag.
