Entre les murs = The class by Laurent Cantet( Visual )

27 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in French and German and held by 1,583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on Bégaudeau's semi-autographical book Entre Les Murs (Between the Walls) "The Class" dramatizes a year in the life of a middle school in an immigrant heavy, multiracial neighborhood in Paris. The students are also nonprofessionals, and classroom sessions were improvised from workshops around specific themes. The documentary-approach to the filming puts the lie to the one-teacher-can-make-a-difference myth propagated by so many other films about school. The shifting classroom dynamics emphasize how traditions, economics, and language hold these students back, not only in education, but also with forging any kind of unified French identity. Additionally, the film suggests it is not just racists or reactionaries that are worrisome; it is when genuine idealists are finally worn down, when the gulf between meaning well and doing well becomes unbridgable. Until the system can be changed, both battles and victories will be moment to moment
