Well-acted but unsurprising, and far more sad than it is scandalous.

Audience Reviews for Mes chères études (Student Services)

Possibly the worst movie I have ever seen. Do NOT watch this movie. You'll thank me later.

This movie is about a girl named Laura who has a lot of trouble paying bills, rent, groceries, and clothes. In order to pay for her things, she turns to prostitution. She is also a college student, so she's trying to get good grades as well.

This movie absolutely SUCKED. There was NO point to the plot at all. The entire movie exploits the actress who plays Laura. There is so much unnecessary sex, rape and nudity scenes. I hope the actress who played Laura got paid bank because that was so inane.

The script was forgettable, the acting was terrible, and the plot was stupid and pointless. The main problem was that Laura couldn't pay the rent so she became a prostitute. The entire movie was her trying to make cash. It was stupid, and Laura's character was so bland. Is the audience supposed to feel sorry for this girl? Is that what the movie was trying to do? Laura is a straight up dumbass. She complains about being a prostitute saying she doesn't like it, but she keeps doing it anyway. She's been raped, tortured, lied to, exploited....and she has the sense to continue? What a fucking idiot. She has no money because like most college students she's too stupid to budget her money wisely. She goes out to eat far too often, she pays for other people's goods, and she buys too many expensive clothes. No fucking shit she doesn't have any money to pay rent! Maybe if she wasn't such a dipshit she'd have enough money to pay the bills. I felt no sympathy towards this girl, and I felt like the movie was such a waste of time.

This movie was so dirty and disgusting I left halfway through to go do something else, then I came back and I saw I hadn't missed anything. This movie is a fucking joke. Laura is so stupid, but stupid is not a strong enough word. She's a fucking dumbass dipshit, and I'm very unhappy that everything worked out for her at the end of the movie. I hope she gets an STD and dies.

A sad little film in which a financially troubled university student begins turning tricks to finance her education and living expenses and quickly gets in over her head. Similar in subject matter to A Call Girl, from Slovenia, this girl seemed to be more easily duped and less in control of her situation. According to the blurb at the end, this is a common occurrence in Europe. The acting is passable, the scenery nondescript and the sex is pretty chaste. An entertaining film, but not, by any means, great cinema.

This French drama, written and directed by Emmanuelle Bercot is bravely revealing us the problem which exist in most of the EU countries since the Union began. In a market economy, education has to make money and the high fees of education are paid by the students.

The story of Laura is a story of one of the students who works in a call center, but even with an extra job she cannot meet her monthly payments. One day she faints in public during a lecture because she hasn't eaten enough, and instead of help by the student counselor, she is given the advice to sue her parents. She knows that her working class parents can't afford to pay more money. Her electricity is cut off and when it comes back she explores on internet a dubious website where matured men advertise in order to get to know women. She contacts a man called Joe who wants to pay her for keeping him company...

One of the things to remember after watching this film is the acting! Déborah François as Laura, Alain Cauchi as Joe and Mathieu Demy as Benjamin did everything for us to believe that these are real lives which suffer in those situations which seemed like a solution for their problems! It is sad that we had no chance to know the characters better due to the lack of their development in the screenplay .

If you like good acting and lots of sex scenes which exploit the perfect body of the actress Déborah François, and you don't mind the weaknesses in the screenplay, give it a go. Very watchable.
