Un Jour Sans Fin
First thing to bear in mind: if those "students " are in high school,well I am ready for kindergarden ; the lad who plays Benjamin was born in 1989!the others,I do not know,but they are all over 20,some nearing 30;let's forget it and say they are backward for their age and they have fallen a long way behind at school.
Benjamin ,unfairly punished ,has got a two-hour detention ;but says the supervisor (?) who welcomes him ,in detention, seconds are minutes and minutes are hours ;and that's really saying something!
The poor lad is caught up in a time loop ,a time warp,and his punishment seems endless ;well ,you get the picture, it's "the groundhog day" all over again .
But to write that "La Colle " suffers in this comparison is an euphemism ;whereas the American movie had an excellent screenplay and good acting ,this dud has none of this : acting is awful ,the gags are heavy-handed ;the lines are witless and directing mindless.
It may be a mightmare for Ben ;it sure is one for the viewer too.
