Zéro de conduite

Review score: * * * * *

cast: Jean Dasté, Louis Lebébvre, Gilbert Pruchon

year: 1932

colour: no


director: Jean Vigo

runtime: 44

Jean Vigo's look at life in a French boarding school was considered so disturbing that it was banned in France until 1945, eleven years after its director's death. The teachers, seen through the eyes of their pupils, are normal yet caricatures and the boys' revolt culminates in a pitched battle on speech day, a scene to be used 30 years later by Lindsay Anderson in his film If.
