With a definite nod to Loach, Tavernier has produced an excellent educational tale. A film that manages to be depressing, heartwarming, and will have you tearing your heart out. Perhaps a tad sentimental ending, but it carries the message and narrative well.

An eye-opener, because it shows a side of France barely shown by cinema aside from the likes of "La Haine".
