Vigo's anarchic, disorienting vision of life in a French boarding school.
These amorphous scenes, strung together by a vague continuity may be art but they are also pretty chaotic.
A wholly original creation, the film walks a narrow line between surrealist farce and social realism.
It's surreal and zany anarchistic slapstick, filmed as if Charlie Chaplin was a teacher in the dreaded suburban boys' boarding school.
a funny, fantastical exaggeration of childhood exuberance and adult idiocy
Pretty great, but also overwhelming: Vigo clearly had a good 80 or 90 minutes worth of movie that he had to fit into half the running time.
One of the most haunting and influential films ever made about childhood, Vigo's feature protests rigid authority and celebrates anarchic revolution. This personal film influenced two other great works: Truffaut's 400 Blows and Lindsay Anderson's If.
Compelling and influential, a fascinating film and essential viewing for film history enthusiasts.
One of the greatest films about children ever made and a haunting celebration of anarchic rebellion.
It's Vigo's most personal work... unrefined, reckless, and sloppy.
Boys at a French boarding school stage a revolt in this heavily anarchist, mildly surreal short (45 min.) feature. A playful but slow-moving curiosity, with a dwarf headmaster and some interesting surprises (including trick photography and an unexpected animated sequence). Historically, it's very interesting, but its importance has been exaggerated by the fact that the French government banned it for 13 years!
While some critics complain of Zero de Conduite being filmed chaotic, It's this sense of chaos that portrays the literal chaos in the film. One of the earliest and most influential films about children and anarchy, Zero de Conduite inspired countless Directors and films. The two most notable and acclaimed being The 400 Blows and If...., both of which are masterpieces. Anarchy is at the core of Vigo's beliefs and films, this being the most literal adaptation and one so revolutionary that it was banned until 1945.
One of the oldest movies about rebellious youngsters. Other than that, it's not a fantastic movie.
A solemn and sincere poem to anarchy.
