The good, the bad and the ugly

Or in other words, a few observations about the differences between France and the UK

Over the years, I have grown to observe a few differences between France and England. Not just culturally or in the obvious linguistic way, but in other ways too. The interesting thing, is that when I first moved to the UK I hated it. I had never felt more french and vowed to leave the UK as soon as possible. But now I have left it, I realise it does have certain qualities that act in it’s favour. There are some striking differences between France and England, and some of them are quite important.

Entre les murs

« Entre les murs » est une cloison délicate à traverser tant il y est dépeint le trouble actuel qui ébranle les racines de l’éducation française.

Le quotidien d’une classe de collège s’habille d’une réalité sensible, parfois âpre et s’imprègne d’un idéalisme finalement légitime. La fiction discrédite évidemment la dimension autonome du témoignage mais sans prétendre non plus à embellir une vérité peu reluisante que le genre s’évertue d’ordinaire à produire.
