DVD Debut: I Love You, Man, The Class

Entre les mursIt’s back to school over at VH1.com, and DVD Debut is in session.

Anybody who has been a teacher (or a high school student) knows that the classroom is a battlefield. The enemy is both indifference and, from the student’s side, discipline. Few films depict the war quite so honestly as this award-winning French film, based on Francois Begaudeau’s book. The former teacher plays a version of himself, trying to get a multicultural class to scrutinize their mixed-up world. The action unfolds with all the fascination of a real-life trip to the trenches … and casualties are taken. A masterpiece.
