A brillant movie nominated for Best Documentary at the 2015 Cesar Ceremony.
Within the unwarranted glut of classroom documentaries in recent years, “School of Babel” will rise to the front ranks, avoiding gratuitous cuteness in favor of a more substantive focus on the struggles of international adolescents coping with the immigrant experience. Julie Bertuccelli (“Since Otar Left”) captures the uniqueness of a Parisian class whose students struggle with integration on top of French and other subjects, and while some may be wary of yet another schoolhouse treatment, this blackboard jungle focuses more on identity than on book smarts.
One glass of Wine included
