Starring: ??? - there are no ‘stars’ in this documentary covering a year in the life of a Parisian junior high school’s reception class for pupils who arrive with limited French. The children hail from many countries and have come to Paris for differing reasons, but form a strong community. This charming film observes their progress and struggles, and gives space for their stories and often wonderfully novel views of the world, in the tradition of past French school documentaries such as Etre et Avoir and The Class.
