AKA: ELEMENTARY
Director: Helene Angel
Starring: Sara Forestier, Vincent Elbaz

Lovers of French Cinema should be completely mesmerized by this heartfelt schoolyard drama which surrounds a teacher in turmoil, realistically portrayed by the talented Sara Forestier.

Florence is a single mother who boards at the school she teaches at with her young son Denis. She is a hardworking, caring and emotionally involved teacher who is trying to ready her class for Middle School.

When a disturbed abandoned child with anger issues joins her classroom, a whole chain of events are unleashed which makes her question her ability as a teacher and a mother.

This film deals with the concept of trying to balance teaching with parenting and has many universal themes which teachers especially will relate to. The ups and downs of teaching, the stresses and most importantly the ideology that this profession takes over people's lives.

Florence is dealt a real blow when her son exclaims 'only school counts for you – you don’t know how to live!' Is the school her fortress and does she hide behind the children? When she ultimately ponders whether it’s normal to be surrounded by children all day she is reminded that it's an extraordinary privilege.

School culture is examined is this emotionally binding film which resonates that there are no teachers - we are all pupils constantly learning new things and most importantly, that teaching is a promise of freedom - not a prison.
