| Claude Berri and Coluche work together to make an enjoyable film about the lives of teachers in a school.
Being a teacher is an extremely serious business in current day France. Most teachers are doing tough jobs as they are constrained to work in crowded schools where violence and insults are regular features. There is also the problem of job satisfaction as the salaries offered are not very high. However, despite all the shortcoming mentioned above teaching profession continues to remain a noble profession in France and elsewhere as good teachers can always make a difference in the lives of students. The true king of French comedy actor Coluche as Gérard Barbier is one such good teacher. It is with great sensibility and tenderness that he plays the role of an educator who really makes efforts to understand the world of children. Although 'Le Maître De l'Ecole' is a comedy film with some memorable performances by school children who crack various hilarious jokes with their teacher, there are also times when it takes the form of a serious film. This gives viewers new ideas about the difficult lives of teachers at an educational institution for children. For this purpose, director Claude Berri extracted good performances from actors Josiane Balasko and Roland Giraud. Watching this film with children would be a great experience for parents as well as teachers as it depicts how one has to behave like children in order to understand their world.
