Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Former high-school teacher Rene Gilson directs this French film, one of the few of its time-period to deal with a politically sensitive subject. Set in a French high school during the late '60s, it concerns the protests by students over archaic teaching methods and situations, and over the nearly universal chauvinism of their course content (France is first and best, now and always). Though the story is told through discussions between the students and confrontations with teachers (including a teacher played by Gilson himself), reviewers did not find its talkiness tiresome.
