François Foucault, veteran professor of French literature at the prestigious Henri IV institute, ends up accepting a position at a public school in the outskirts of Paris in a troubled area. A bit pedantic and prejudiced, François must adapt to a new social reality in which culture and the desire for knowledge are not the priority of his students.Written by
As teacher, I saw this real good film as a too deja vu. the differences , the adaptation, the challenges, the sentimental problems, the discover of students step by step, the vulnerability of the position of front to the class, the social problems and the options. for the others could be a nice film. and that is not a wrong impression. the humor, the spices of French cinema are good points. and, sure, the performances. but for me, it remains a smart, maybe too unrealistic in few scenes, portrait of the life of a teacher.
