The Class

A teacher navigates a racially mixed class in a tough Parisian neighborhood.


Why watch this film?

With non-actors, the movie brings an emotional load and a unique originality, taking us truly between the walls of the school. Thus, in a genuine way, the story puts into discussion the dilemmas of teaching, the relationship between teachers, students and parents and the most diverse important issues in this universe - which, of course, are also relevant to the whole society. 'Entre os Muros da Escola' received the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2008.
