Synopsis

A huge hit in its native France, this Oscar-nominated story of tough kids in a sink school in the France of 1949 has all the impact of its predecessors in the genre, such as Les quatre cents coups, Goodbye Mr Chips and Dead Poets Society.

The arrival of M. Mathieu (GĂ©rard Jugnot), armed only with his musical compositions, would seem to hold out little hope of impacting on the hardened early teen-aged criminals who conduct a secret war with their corrupt and vicious headmaster. There's plenty of tension, emotion, humour and music to please most tastes in this eminently entertaining movie.
