Dans La Maison – In The House

A clever, and at times very funny, film about the developing mentor/mentee relationship between a teacher and one of his pupils.

Teachers (and I think there were several in the audience with me) will enjoy the sequence a the beginning of the film in which there is much poking of fun at the new pedagogy being introduced to the school – a uniform, putting the ‘learner’ (not the ‘pupil’) at the centre of the learning experience …

As the story progresses, it’s not always easy to see who is steering the relationship and why, but it all hangs together in a very clever way, with excellent performances from Kristen Scott Thomas, Fabrice Luchini and newcomer Ernst Umhauer.
