A good movie

1 year, 3 months ago at May 11 8:33
Every year, you have a couple of documentaries which become really successful or even a smash hit. This flick was one of them and was pretty huge back in 2002. Therefore, after hearing so many good things about this movie, I got some pretty huge expectations. Honestly, I thought it was rather disappointing. I mean, it was pretty good, that's for sure, but I really had a hard time to see what was s... read more

Filmsite Greatest Tearjerkers Scenes/Movie Moments (318 movies items)

"The tearjerking scene in this documentary in which wise, heroic veteran teacher (Georges Lopez as Himself) in a one-room village school for about a dozen students in France's Auvergne region counseled empathically with one tearful boy whose father was being treated for cancer; and the lingering scene at the conclusion when all the children left the classroom at the end of the term after he wished them good luck and said goodbye (with multiple kisses on both cheeks) - with the image of him standi"

“Every year, you have a couple of documentaries which become really successful or even a smash hit. This flick was one of them and was pretty huge back in 2002.

I mean, it was pretty good, that's for sure, but I really had a hard time to see what was so amazing about it. I don't know, maybe it has do with the fact that I was myself born in a very small French village and spent my first 6 years in such a small village school (though not as small as the one depicted in the movie) so there was no huge revelation for me there. I guess for all the people who spend their whole life living in the city, it might have been shocking somehow. I also had a” read more

"A documentary portrait of a one-room school in rural France, where the students (ranging in age from 4 to 11) are educated by a single dedicated teacher. Slow-paced but a simple and touching story."

"5.3. I Hate kids. I just hate everything about them so I was facinated how dedicated and warm teacher George Lopez is - after 35 years of teaching. I felt that if me and my girlfriend ever decide to have kids - other teachers has a hard time to please us because we want the George Lopez -level of teaching. "
