A remarkable new film about what happens over the course of a year between a single collège (junior high or middle school) class in the multi-ethnic 20th arrondissment of Paris and their French teacher. Director Laurent Cantet shot multiple improvised takes of real students and a real teacher using three cameras to make "The Class."
