An average school teacher is about to fall into a big depression due to threats and humiliation she gets from schoolers. Nobody of her coworkers is interested in this situation, and they are not going to help. Once, after a horrible fight with one of the students, she gets a real gun. Now everyone is under her control, though the situation is still completely uncontrollable...
excerpt, more at my location - Jean-Paul Lilienfeld has certainly ensured his new film Skirt Day will be talked about. Not only is it set in the hotbed of social issues that is Paris' outer regions, it also sees the return after a five year big-screen hiatus of Isabelle Adjani, one of the most celebrated actresses in the history of French cinema. Lilienfeld's film takes place in a lower class high school, and deals with some of the biggest issues of the day such as race, class and the French education system.
Full of emotion, hostility and dark humour, Skirt Day provides heart- pounding drama and astute social commentary in equal doses. All of this is capped off with a scintillating performance from Isabelle Adjani, who really does teach a lesson to any aspiring actresses.
