Sensitive portrait of a teacher in rural France.
Un très beau documentaire, plein d'humanité.
Mr Lopez, l'instituteur parfait.
Those children have no idea how lucky they were to have such a caring, patient teacher. Coming from the 1960's where they packed close to 50 kids in my classes in grade school, I know how much I missed and how blessed these children are. It's only a fair documentary, really but it is a wonderful tribute to teachers everywhere.
