So many things went right with this movie.
The film explores a few different serious social themes in a thought-provoking and moving way, without telling us as the viewer what we should believe.
It is a French Canadian film about school and children and teachers, about death and suicide, about immigration and political asylum.
This is an excellent, meaningful script, and the situations faced by the characters really resonate with my high school French classes. Read morePublished 1 month ago by T. Nunnery
