Cantet almost constantly packs his frame, drawing us closer to the immediacy and at-times claustrophobic nature of the classroom environment. That the film never leaves the school grounds only enhances its non-fiction sensibility.
As you watch this exhilarating back-and-forth, it dawns on you that an ethically complex, emotionally troubling plot has taken shape; and you realize, with astonishment, that Cantet waited an hour to let it emerge.
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]
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.
