Movie Info

A man with a different sort of educational style upends his students' expectations in this satiric short comedy from Italian filmmaker Andrea Jublin. A handful of teenagers amble into class with little concern for what's on the day's lesson plan when they're confronted by their new substitute teacher. The teacher has a sharp sense of humor and is willing to trade insults with his students, but he's also eager to challenge them to forget the normal codes of classroom behavior and let their impulsive side run free. The students are as excited as they've been in years until the school's principal arrives and everyone learns something surprising about the new teacher in town. Il Supplente (aka The Substitute) won the prize for best comedy at the 2007 Aspen Shortfest, a festival honoring short films from around the world. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
