Award-winning French drama based on the book by teacher Francois Begaudeau, which chronicles a year in the life of an inner-city Parisian high school with a high intake of pupils from multicultural backgrounds. Begaudeau himself plays the teacher who struggles to keep this motley crew of pupils (all played by non-professional teenage actors) engaged with their studies and out of trouble. The film won the Palm d’Or at the 2008 Cannes film festival.
