It never crossed my mind that the french education would have so many similar issues as the brazilian one. And it's a good movie, it makes you see all the situations from both perspectives, teachers and students. The focus in here was the public education, but I think that is it what is lacking nowadays: try to put ourselves in someone else's shoes; and then, perhaps, we can understand them.
The film describes the relationship between a teacher and 24 students in a junior high school located in Paris. The situation surrounding education is totally different from Japanese one. I'm curious whether this film is realistic and interested in opinions of various people from other backgrounds.
