François Foucault is a teacher at one of the most prestigious schools in France, until he is forced to move to a so-called hotspot school.
Until now, François has had a comfortable life as part of the intellectual bourgeoisie of Paris. From the Lycée Henri IV, which has a history going back more than 200 years, he moves to a school in the banlieues whose students are considered to be in dire need of special support.
Critics attest THE TEACHER an almost documentary-like realism. Director Olivier Ayache-Vidal immersed himself in the Collège de Seine-Saint-Denis for two years to prepare.
"An impressive teacher, great spirits indeed and a worthwhile film, which teaches values, morality, character strengths and what teaching and education must be about." (Notes About Films)
