Los Angeles Times "...Tavernier shows us, in more ways than one, that le cinema de qualite lives on..." Sight and Sound "...Tavernier takes great delight in moments of high drama and in abstraction..." Film Comment "...A moving tribute to the ingenuity and courage of those real-life film-makers to whom LAISSEZ-PASSER is dedicated..."Total Film "...Tavernier is interested in his characters not in terms of the cinema they produced but because of the conditions they survived, and the decisions they made....What Tavernier does here is celebrate filmmakers who did the best they could under the circumstances...."

"A sly alluring, and at times unsettling examination of the parallels between violence in the public and private spheres....An intimate epic, as coolly calculated as a chess match..."Film Comment "[A] rousing amalgam of ambition, moods and genre conceits....The French director Bertrand Tavernier deploys some smart ideas in this film..."New York Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "So well does Bertrand Tavernier evoke the period that it evokes tangible physical qualities....Tavernier has an uncanny success in showing the life within a medieval castle..."Chicago Sun-Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "At times, PRINCESS resembles a widescreen Hollywood western, with exhilarating Steadicam shots of horsemen galloping across broad plains..."Washington Post 4 stars out of 5 -- "Robustly acted and dynamically photographed; Tavernier is equally adept at directing intimate encounters as choreographing savage battles..."Total Film "As a period drama, the film has many merits: swashbuckling set pieces...and formal decorative episodes in the form of weddings and masked balls."Sight and Sound0.9254935

5 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a fantastic example of vrit filmmaking that gains much of its power from its verisimilitude....In mesmerizing fashion, Cantet and Bgaudeau have molded material taken from reality into a resonant work of art."Box Office "The greatest pleasure in THE CLASS is seeing an actual teacher -- a skilled, creative teacher -- at work....Cantet orchestrates the myriad conflicts that arise within and among everyone involved with intelligence and subtlety. THE CLASS is thoroughly absorbing from beginning to end."Film Comment Included in Entertainment Weekly's 2008 Films Of The Year -- "THE CLASS becomes the most revealing inspirational-teacher film ever made, a moving and memorable look at what knowledge really is."Entertainment Weekly "[A] thought-provoking film. Told in a quasi-documentary style, THE CLASS is tightly focused on the struggles, squabbles and occasional triumphs of a Parisian high school teacher and his ethnically diverse class."USA Today "THE CLASS is one of the most alive and engrossing movies ever to take on the rich, infinitely renewable topic of school-as-life, and make it feel real. Unscripted. And above all, honest." -- Grade: AEntertainment Weekly 4 stars out of 4 -- "It is about the power struggle between a teacher who wants to do good and students who disagree about what 'good' is."Chicago Sun-Times "If the movie looks like a documentary, it feels like what it is: a powerful work that mixes fact and fiction in the service of truth."Wall Street Journal 4 stars out of 5 -- "[The film] feels effortlessly convincing....Not since Bertrand Tavernier's 1999 CA COMMENCE AUJOURD'HUI have we seen a school this real on screen."Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "The debuting Begaudeau ably captures the enthusiasm and discomfort of an idealist....The resulting stand-offs are tense, amusing and never anything less than authentic."Empire Included in Chicago Sun-Times's "The Best Foreign Films Of 2009" -- "[THE CLASS acheives] an uncanny spontaneity and realism."Chicago Sun-Times0.2911166
