Description Technical Specs
Bertrand Tavernier makes the everyday electric with this compelling portrait of a teacher and administrator struggling to make a difference in a system plagued by institutional paralysis, blinded bureaucracy, and the desperate living conditions of his students' parents. Philippe Torreton is absolutely perfect in the lead role in this powerful, dramatic story of social commitment. "...a film full of life, emotion, anger and hope" (Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune). In French with English subtitles.
