entre les murs.

entre les murs dir. Laurent Cantet is an amazing film. It profiles a particular group of students as well as their teacher during one school year. I felt that this was a powerful film because it depicted the life of the students as they're seen by the outside world. We see what the teachers and education system see, no knowledge of the home life or other factors that play into adolescence life. We see how the classroom becomes a haven for the students to speak their minds and embrace their emotions. Although the film appeared slow, it gave way to analyzing and processing the setting in a detailed manner. I enjoyed it and I highly recommend seeing it if you haven't already. Watch the trailer here. btw, the actors were extremely excellent as well. Okay, time to study. I hope april ends quicker than it came.
