Movies – Australia and The Class
One French recognised by the Academy and one Aussie has been shown France-wide
The French film The Class (Entre les Murs – Between the Walls), currently showing in cinemas here, has been nominated for an Oscar for Best Foreign Film. It tells the story of a teacher in a tough high school in the less fortunate 20th Paris arrondissement.
When we were recently in France, ‘Australia’ was showing in every cinema (even our local one in Pouzauges). While it did not receive great critics reviews (got 1 star from Le Figaro), the film does seem to have sparked a lot of interest in our home country. Tourism Australia is tapping into the film’s French release offering a chance to win a trip here – click here to play the French trailer.
