The first of a double bill of films directed in the early 1930s by the acclaimed French film-maker Jean Vigo. A definitive statement on school life and the nature of authority based largely on Vigo's own experiences as a pupil in two provincial boarding schools. By turns a hilarious satire and a bitter indictment of the education system, the film has been the subject of controversy since it was released (and immediately banned) in France 40 years ago. Its unique quality of dreamlike fantasy has influenced countless directors since then. A French film with English subtitles.
