Entre les murs

I saw the 2008 Cannes Palm d’Or winning film, Entre les murs (The Class) last night at Shortwave Cinema. It was excellent. It’s a fictional story shot in a semi-documentary style with teacher and author François Bégaudeau in a lead role and non-professional students as the class. It’s a fascinating, changing, shades-of-grey story of real life in a multi-ethnic Parisian classroom. It avoids cliché or emotional tricks. It shows no one’s perfect. It shows how life goes on. It’s very good.
