good old school
The great cinematographer Philippe Agostini directed this tender comedy about a special teacher of french played by Michel Serrault who tries his best to learn french in a passionate manner to his pupils. And it works, he even falls in love with a pupil's mother, so the reality joins literature. I won't compare this movie to any other french movie because it sure isn't masterpiece, but Agostini's direction is surely intelligent if you remember his cinematography in masterpieces like "Pattes Blanches" or "Du Rififi Chez Les Hommes".
But I compare this movie to today's school, where there is no surveillance and children are so violent influenced by silly video games and using iphones for learning agressive actions. All these kids today cannot read one book, french school today is completely poor, and when I see this movie, I just say we have lost so many values (respect, culture, ...).
Don't miss Darry Cowl as a seller like he did in "A Pied, En Cheval, En Voiture").
