Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Most impressive, Cantet tracks the racial and ethnic resentments that simmer beneath the classroom discussions but become harder to quell when the parents get involved. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: By rough estimate, maybe 80 percent of the movie consists of these student-teacher slanging matches, but it's engrossing. – Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: These kids aren't always all right. But they are consistently riveting. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: The Class, an Oscar-nominated French film about a Paris middle school, should be required viewing for anybody considering a career in teaching. – Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel, May 13, 2009

En Français S-V-P!

Enfin un film Français sur iTunes! Mais, il a été traduit en anglais! Pourquoi ne pas le rendre accessible dans sa langue d'origine avec possibilité de sous-titres? Il est temps pour Apple de proposer autre chose que des Blockbusters américains sur iTunes!

The Class!?!?!?!

Il devrait avoir un système de sous-titres! C'est ridicule!


An incredibly interesting movie, which actually has some funny moments. Well-filmed. A very interesting look into the French education system.
