Based on a semi-autobiographical novel about a French teacher’s experiences in one of Paris’ toughest schools, this won the 2008 Palme d’Or at Cannes.  Starring Francois Bégaudeau, the novelist, in the role of the teacher, this absorbing, intelligent film also exposes the cultural and racial divisions existing within Europe. “This is one of the screen’s most rewarding explorations of the teacher/student relationship in any language…director Cantet simultaneously breaks your heart a little while imparting a sense of bittersweet, hard-won optimism” Chicago Tribune.
