[An] absorbing Slovak-Czech drama ...
"The Teacher" benefits not only from filmmakers who join a multifaceted understanding of human nature with a fastidious control of technique and style, but also from being set in a particular time and place.
A little power corrupts absolutely in this caustically clever Slovak-language dramedy from the prolific Czech director-writer team of Jan Hrebejk and Petr Jarchovsky
"The Teacher" is polished, engaging and somewhat risk-averse.
Though flecked with dark humor, the film is a chilling reminder of what people can get away with, and what can become normal, if one consents to an oppressive system.
Although dealing with weighty matters, Jarchovsky's script (which is based on a real-life incident he experienced during primary school) is leavened with welcome humor and irony.
The Professor has the virtue of showing how capable humans are to adapt in order to survive especially after disgrace. The film is a commentary on how the system doesn't really change. [Full Review in Spanish]
... built on the reflection of abuse of political power in life's smallest details. [Full review in Spanish]
The film understands that broken systems persist precisely because their brokenness benefits somebody.
There is no doubt that this is a neat and well-crafted feature film, however, it also has its weak points... [Full review in Spanish]
The Teacher brings us an exceptional villain...
The Teacher just for once justifies the familiar cry, "Won't someone please think of the children?"
