the frame of The film lies in the title. It is already that. The class Struggle tells the story of a couple, that of Sofia, a lawyer, and Paul, drummer for punk rock and anarchist, who moved to the suburbs. Their son, Corentin, is enrolled in the public school of the district, and was soon deserted by his buddies for private institutions.

“What a delight this movie is!”, launches in the preamble Jean-Christophe Buisson. And take note of its comic force.

But it was soon interrupted by his opponent, who judge that one can caricature this film, “already somewhat of a caricature”.
Gregory Leménager find the idea and the intentions of the film “excellent”, the actors “good”, but these qualities are not sufficient to address to the rhythm “draft” and the links “very awkward” for several sequences. As for the characters, they become even “idiots”. “The film wants to be a comedy, so he tries to put a gag per minute, there are gags that are not funny,” he continued.
