The Class Reviews

Deadspin

You will be sporadically moved by The Class, and maybe even inspired. You will also feel overpowering despair. But mostly: You will want to hug anyone who has ever, ever been a schoolteacher.

Seems to question the continued effectiveness of an old teaching approach and its ability to adapt to new problems as well as modern variations of old ones.

In the tidiest pitch-speak, it's the Dardennes do Degrassi, a convincingly intimate glimpse at the epic battle waged against apathy in schools the world over.

But ultimately it's a fascinating, sometimes exhilarating movie that seems to make a genuine contact with the classroom, and shows us an educational system struggling, and managing, to survive.

Groucho Reviews

A great achievement in cinematic realism...when conflict arises, and it frequently does, the filmmakers refuse to instruct us on who's right and who's wrong, making the film its own kind of Socratic lecture. [Blu-ray]

Uruguay Total

Un film tan realista que parece un documental ficcionado, y que se beneficia de la naturalidad de sus "actores". No es un film dramático tradicional, es más bien una reflexión sobre el sistema educativo y los vínculos dentro del salón de clase.

indieWIRE

Cantet's film lulls the spectator into the rhythms of the everyday reality of school, belying a very carefully coordinated narrative structure that only becomes apparent in its final act.

Laramie Movie Scope

An astonishing achievement for writer-actor François Bégaudeau who adapted his own book for the screenplay and also stars in this absorbing film about the challenges of teaching in a public school.

It feels so "real," its fluid camera style like a cinéma-vérité.

...this doesn't fall into the easy cliches of the teacher at the bad school miraculously winning over the kids.

What sets The Class apart isn't simply its less-than-cozy tone, but the fact that it constantly plays against our expectations.

Aposta na ambigüidade e na sensação de estarmos acompanhando os fatos à medida que estes se desenrolam num ambiente de improviso que sempre valoriza o acaso.
