A remarkable film charting life in an inner city multicultural high school in Paris. Exploring the honest (if sometimes misguided) attempts of a teacher to help his pupils even when faced with apathy and racial divide, The Class is a refreshing, exhilarating and totally compelling movie. Taking into consideration that the ensemble cast are all non-actors and a lot of the dialogue was improvised only makes it even more of a sensational effort by director Laurent Cantet. A film without stereotypes and clichés, the 2008 Palme d'Or winner is a uniquely thought provoking tale which raises many important questions without offering up easy answers.

It completely exceeded all my expectations and should win the Oscar for Best Foreign Language film. It is a departure for Laurent Cantet, whose movies are typically more adult. I wasn't sure I would be all that interested in the film. However, the characters were fleshed-out and relevant to the changing racial tone in Paris, now that the city is becoming more diversified.

Great/realistic movie about being a teacher

I'm not sure if I'm rating this too highly or too lowly. I always have a hard time rating movies about teachers and schools because I have a special place in my heart for them.

I think this movie would be extremely interesting to any teacher. It doesn't follow the hollywood script (ala Dangerous Minds) where a teacher changes everyone's life. I appreciated this movie because it just follows one teacher (Mr. Morin) who there isn't really anything too special about. He has run ins with students, gets push back, has successes and failures. It's just real and I really appreciate that. I wish the movie would have focused on Mr. Morin more. From a personal point I think it would have been good to see him mood outside of work fluctuate with what is going on in the class room.

Overall it wa...
