Actually, you didn't realise what you were doing - it was like a game," adds Louise Grinberg, 15, who appears in the movie under her own name, playing an intelligent yet shy member of the class. During the next class, despite the confidential nature of the teachers' conference, the two girls tell the others that François had it in for Souleymane. Surrounding Bégaudeau is a cast of equally inexperienced actors, all of whom were encouraged to develop their characters through improvisation, and the performances the director has elicited from this ensemble are extraordinary for their lack of artifice.

The novel is a semi-autobiographical account of Bégaudeau's experiences as a French language and literature teacher in a middle school in the 20th arrondissement of Paris, particularly illuminating his struggles with "problem children": Esmerelda (Esmeralda Ouertani), Khoumba (Rachel Regulier), and Souleymane (Franck Keïta). However, after an argument over football teams with Will, another boy who is problematic, Souleymane insults François and is sent to the head teacher's office. Before that point, we simply observe the day-to-day interactions between Marin and his pupils, and in these scenes, The Class differentiates itself from almost every other school-based film we've seen by making one simple choice – it actually focuses on teaching. Then Laurent would say something like 'I want you to be more attentive', so I would do that and he would say 'Yes, like that, like what you just did'.She is responsible for processing the ID, Qualifications, DBS Check and References for all our newly joining tutors , as well as taking tuition enquiries, matching tutors to clients, and supporting tutors and clients throughout the process of tuition. In spite of this, François insists on the importance of them understanding the imperfect subjunctive — and I think this passage actually reflects one of the central ideas of the film: education gives you a choice . And though by the end of the film, we're left wondering how education is even possible, there is a measure of hope in the realization that the system of pedagogy is generally sound, that students are generally well-meaning and capable, and that somehow many people emerge from the morass of adolescence and structured schooling as predominantly well-adjusted individuals. There isn't really a point in talking about performances, save for the adults, who are nonetheless teachers in real life.

Just being there gave me such a frisson," he says, "but I didn't have good enough English to go up and talk to them.Clearly, then, a good and conscientious teacher, very far from the defeatism and cynicism that has begun to drag down some of his colleagues, though it is his very informality and openness with his pupils that is to get him into trouble. At the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, two movies were able to give viewers a vivid glimpse of the very real social context they dealt with.
