Critics reviews

The most amazing thing about the movie, however, is that except for Mr. Lespert, all the actors are non-professional-though you would never suspect it because they are all so convincing in their class-structured roles. Jean-Claude Vallod especially is a revelation as the father. He came close to making me cry with his steadfast conservatism in refusing to be “reformed,” and also his fear that his son would blow his great opportunity to rise in the world by choosing to grandstand instead.
