A fully absorbing character study of who the system is most likely to fail when promise is stoked, but not followed through on.
"Scaffolding" seems somewhat torn when it comes to telegraphing its own intentions. Its ambiguities of character take a back seat to a trite upshot.
A troubled student is challenged by his literature teacher, who aims to open his narrow worldview to other possibilities.
A tough and moving educational drama.
Writer-director Yair's approach is complex and surprising, continually upending the characters and the audience.
The films with wise teacher, equilibrist of common sense in a depauperate environment, have been shaped like a classic subgenre. [Full Review in Spanish]
Far from being an inspirational character in the style of the Dead Poets Society... the teacher ( Ami Smolartchik) is a figure with serious deficiencies that shows that bonhomie and teaching ability don't always come together. [Full review in Spanish]
A small film with a big heart.
From the unexpectedly cool colour palette to the observations on class and Jewish immigration, writer/director Matan Yair's worthy coming of age drama manages to reveal contemporary Israel in a different light.
Scaffolding shuns moments of easy drama, but the film is still incapable of crafting more complicated ones to replace them, as Yair remains too beholden to the script's muted twists and turns to devote much attention to ambiguity or atmosphere.
There is a feeling of authenticity about the film: Yair knows these kids and teachers, and he never sacrifices the story to make a point.
