3.5 out of 10 A year with a class...
Ciaran from Dublin, 17 Sep 2009
Documentary style drama that tracks a single mixed gender and race class in a working-class French school. SHows that teenagers in school are the same whether they are here in Ireland or in France, or anywhere else for that matter. All the kids are not actors and that adds to the gritty feeling.

As amusing and inspiring as the teenage students can be, their difficult behavior can still jeopardize any teacher's enthusiasm for the low-paying job. Francois insists on an atmosphere of respect and diligence....
