The Class


The Class is incredibly accurate and real. It’s interesting how similar this classroom scene is to my high school…and I can imagine every other public middle/high school. I was especially interested to see how the teachers acted when they were together, how they talked about the students to each other and how they discussed discipline. Everything seemed like it was taken from just real life. This isn’t just a coincidence though. That’s the whole point of this film. The movie is based off of the book, Entre Les Murs, written by Francois Begaudeau, who is actually casted as the teacher. The students are not actors, but real live students. One of the things that keeps this movie real is that this isn’t one of those –teacher teaches students respect and transforms their lives- types stories. It’s not full of drama or anything really out of the ordinary. It’s a typical school year and it reveals the relationship between students and teachers today. What’s the moral of the story? What’s the message? I’m not sure. It is not a movie that states a specific problem and unveils an obvious answer. I feel that its purpose was to photograph the classroom just as it is…something every kid and teacher can relate to.
