That life in the school!
12 April 2020 | by fersiafSee all my reviews

A typical portrait of how school looks like. I just can't relate too well since I am from Asia and students here are very much different. It also got me thinking is this the real situation in the suburban schools of France? I've seen also a lot of American Movies but I don't see misbehavior close to what is shown in this movie. Well, I guess, maybe this is just how liberated students in France are. Are they really?

Well, as a teacher, the movie is on point on how we really come up to decisions when it's all about giving sanctions to students. It always looks like we are having a board meeting.

Honestly, I didn't like the ending. It got me thinking, for real? the boy just stood up for himself and then tell everyone in the room about what he is and what he is not, and then ended up just like that the next school year? It leaves me hanging as to what has been the decision of the school as regards what the boy said? Did they just let it slip it off and then move on? Well, sadly, sometimes it is just what the school does.
