"Être et Avoir" is a charming and intimate portrait of a single-class primary school in rural France and its inspirational teacher.

Great Film - Être et Avoir review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
30/12/2005

Wonderful film. Quiet, yet compelling. The little kid is a star - quite unlike the usual pretentious child portrayals in films.

P.S. If you like this, you will like The Chorus too.

Having just watched and reviewed "The Hunt" I was reminded of this wonderful film. Added this because I was surprised at the lack of reviews here.

This fly on the wall docu movie from 2002 presents a time of serene and technology free childhood of a small group of children attending a school in very rural France. How lucky they were. I wonder if it still exists.
