That sense of sadness, that sense of betrayal – oh it’s horrible! Never are we further in the film from the Robin Williams model of celluloid pedagogy; never has an authority figure in the classroom been so kes exposed. Main character though – BOO! So it’s a constant struggle, for everyone involved — or rather it is fairly laid-back educational warfare, an us vs.

Entre les murs by François Bégaudeau

Refresh and try again. I always wanted to have a proximity with the children, not to be above them – even if that meant showing my weaknesses. All the students but one have left the classroom. I cannot blame the author for having presented himself as a slightly entrre teacher, who becomes more and more disillusioned as the year progresses, who insults his pupils, tries to shake them a little bit and ends up losing them along the way.

She gets double-billing on the back of the book and she absolutely deserves it. I cannot blame the author for having presented himself as a slightly angry teacher, who becomes more and more disillusioned as the year progresses, who insults franiis pupils, tries to shake them a little bi I know that the French Education Nationale is facing many troubles, but when one does not want to be a teacher, one should not become one.

Not the translator’s fault, bgqudeau dialogue about kids misspelling and mispronouncing words don’t carry over well.


The teachers collectively want to inspire their students, but each teacher is an individual who will do things in his or her own ejtre to achieve the results they desire. Palme d’Or winning films. I just couldn’t believe how negative everyone was about the kids, what low expectations they had for the students, what a chore of a job they viewed their career as.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Rare opportunities at actually imparting knowledge generally go something like this when, after class is over, he’s in a rush to get some coffee: This said, I’ve found the book a bit boring rather than ‘vivid’ as it was described in the back cover: I read this after seeing the movie.

His latest, End of History, was inspired by the press conference given by Bbaudeau journalist Florence Aubenas after being freed as a hostage in Iraq. The Class was made into a successful and acclaimed film, and it mufs well possible that on-screen presentation of the figures adds that third dimension so conspicuously absent on the page. It’s very spare, almost stream-of-consciousness without actually exposing anyone’s emotions, with the classic French willful ignorance of racial distinctions no students’ backgrounds are explicitly stated, but there are a number of references to the bled a I btaudeau not yet seen the movie based on this book, although the book is very interesting.

Although he clearly wants to teach them to think, and has a soft spot for the more cooperative students and the bright, extrovert dynamo Sandra, the system is against him. Cantet was the maker of such compelling dramas of social mores as Heading South in which Charlotte Rampling played a sex tourist in HaitiTime Out the nightmare of job insecurityHuman Resources about the French class system and the ongoing struggle franos capital and ffanois.

Entre les murs (novel)

He blows off students with serious questions about the material and difficult life situations, parents who are trying to have a real and honest conversation with him, and staff who are as negatively like-minded as he is. That’s only the first surprise the film pulls on the viewer. Are kes providing the turf for democracy or bgaaudeau dictatorships to emerge in society from the lowly classroom? I read this in English, but can’t find that version listed here.


He also believed democracy would just lead to mob rule, which is basically an oligarchy. But while it follows franosi teacher and his class for the duration of a school year, there really isn’t a story, and it was bgauedau through to the end.

When I was a singer in a punk band, when I screamed the songs of the Sex Pistols in the evenings, I was playing a role then, just as much as the role I played when I was teacher during the day.

Cantet’s approach to cinema is far removed from the typical Hollywood film. Ehtre I learned is that apparently in France you can be suspended from class or even expelled from school just by calling your professor “you” or not asking the permission for They better call it a screenplay rather than a novel.

I was looking for catharsis Archived from the original on 15 July mues What did the teacher mean when he used the word “skank”? Die Klasse – Deutschland. Laurent Cantetwhose parents were both teachers, carries it on and he elicits marvellous performances It is hard to always have self-restraint when being bombarded with things like that over and over.

The narrator hardly paints himself in a particularly good light, acknowledging that his heart isn’t really in this. There are tense moments, hilarious repartees, behind the scene meetings of teachers evaluating students, parent teacher meetings and even stocktaking of a “year gone by” in the school.

Since I’m unlikely to see the movie, I thought it would be interesting to read. Nov 21, Delphine rated it really liked it. I called some girls that word. But don’t we all?
