Zéro de conduite (1933)

Zéro de conduite is a French movie by Jean Vigo.

Summer vacation comes to an end and kids need to return to boarding school, a place without much joy and where the teachers don’t need much to punish you. Or, as the title indicates, give you a zero for bad behaviour. 4 among them decide to rebel, which the new supervisor turns a blind eye to in order for them to succeed.

On the day of the school feast, they put their rebellion to work by turning the school into complete anarchy. With the 4 rebels on the school roof top.

It’s interesting to see movies from the thirties, where child actors seem to be more themselves than actors.

Nice little movie (it’s a short movie in all).

Worth seeing.
