The novel is autobiographical, tells the story of a little French boy of Algerian heritage. The story really hits hard about how living in pover Reading a book while watching the film of it is never a good idea. Azouz Begag has crafted an enjoyable read about growing up in France as a disadvantaged transplant from Algeria granted, he was born in Lyon, but his entire family is Arabic. What I propose to explore specifically here are some of the stylistic distinctions between how these two films employ similar generic conven- tions and, moreover, to indicate some ways in which cinematographic choices here fashion two rather different takes on the role of educational in- stitutions in the context of immigration.

A movie that could have been written for Fellag. On se touche les bouches. Both Cantet and Falardeau create dramatic situations as much out of unspoken spatial friction and nonverbal cues as they do from dialogue. The plotlines vary, and it’s weird jumping around from things that have happened on the screen, and not in the book. A little bit difficult to understand if French isn’t your first language, but that mostly has to do with the different dialects that the characters have. In one scene, for instance, a rear shot of Boris, slumped over at his desk, is viewed from the rear left — a position we already know from prior scenes to be that of the little girl, and not Bachir.

The plotlines vary, and it’s weird jumping around from things that have happened on the screen, and not in the book. Read this for my French literature class and I kept it instead of selling it back with other books. Notably, although Lazhar remains a conspicuous pivot point for most of the learning dynamics, his position varies more now with the desks in rows, as he is no longer compelled to stay in the center of the classroom as defined by Lachance.

Haut et Court, The spatial dynamics of an elementary school classroom are of pri- mary importance in Monsieur Lazhar from the very first image. All around, it’s a very insightful novel that I’m glad to have read. crtique

Le gone du Chaâba

I feel like I’ve already read this book 5 times over last year. Sylvie Durmelat and Vinay Swamy. Although the most important part of the story is the sociological implications, it would have been nice to have a cbaaba understanding of what went on in Azouz’s the character psyche. Remember me on this computer. Azouz Begag, the author, is the French minister for promotion of equal opportunities He did a lecture at my school in Switzerland and I was so intrigued by I decided to check out his book.

I really enjoyed this story. It is with subtly that he depicts the many challenges facing the children of immigrants in continuing there education, being ostracized by their peers, economic struggles at home, and discouragement from some teachers. Rosalind Galt and Karl Schoonover.

Still, Begag’s work here is important; I recommend it to anyone interested in France, European colonialism, or segregation in general.

In a literary sense, it ends and trails off, giving us concrete conclusion to a scattered plot.
