The inapt pupils: the past generation (rental)
10 October 2014 | by leplatypusSee all my reviews

In France, we have a famous 80s comedy about lazy, funny teens in high school getting their diploma (« Les Sous Doués »). Here, it's the same thing but during the decade before, thus in the 70s : what's striking is the high politic and societal consciousness of those students (marxism, feminism) and their fashion style (wool) that dresses them like shepherds ! In the 80s, those 2 facts have disappeared but we had still style and education (I studied then), whereas nowadays, in the next millennium, those same classes are just hollow, stupid and dress in sport-ware all the time !

As a Klapish movie, we can discern already his future trademark : it's fresh, funny and he isn't afraid to play with the frame (here, when they are all stoned !). He knew already how to blend some serious matters (jobless, getting old and responsible, falling in love) in a light content. His casting was great as he was one who discovered Romain. All his buddies are cool too and i admit that the young English teacher is just amazing to shake a young shy student (like I was).
