L'annee du certif
This is a nice film mainly about René, the younger son (Félix Briaud) but with a very large helping of the pretty Pascaline (Laetitia Legrix - from Amour Fou https://www.first-loves.net/forums/v ... php?t=2844 ). To whet your appetite...This certificate was formerly obtained by pupils at the end of primary school. It disappeared and in the naughties is nothing but a memory for older people,retired or soon-to-be -retired .I thought myself of taking it ,but the principal told my mother it was useless.
The teacher of a small village has a dream :he wants his son to get his certificate and to be the best in the district ("Canton").His younger son is less gifted : he is ashamed of him and treats him like a dunce.His obsession is so strong his marriage (his wife is a schoolteacher too) is soon on the rocks.Enter a handsome teacher and this is no more the perfect family.
The day of the exam is particularly well directed ,with the inspector of schools and the inhabitants talking arithmetic and spelling .When the results are announced ,there will be some surprises.And even an unexpected twist,ten years later.This is an above average MTV work.
