The Class - Laurent Cantet

I was little apprehensive about watching ‘The Class’ at first, despite of its Palme D’Or win and Oscar nomination in the Best Foreign Film category. It focuses on the familiar grounds of teacher student relationships on which by now, hundreds of movies and tens of great movies have been made. But here’s my bit of advice – don’t close your eyes to this one, timeworn as its subject may sound. If you have The Class screening anywhere close to your neighbourhood, make it there - on emergency footing.
