“No waves”: the risks of the teaching profession

The first class scene No waves, new French film in a school setting, looks like a tribute to Between the walls by the late Laurent Cantet. But no, the third opus of Teddy Lussi-Modeste after Jimmy Riviere (2011) and The Price of Success (2017), both unpublished in Switzerland, soon falls into another line: that which shows us a disoriented teaching body, between an increasingly trapped terrain and new demands for irreproachability, without forgetting a lack of means and supports. This film is inspired by a real episode in the life of the filmmaker, who is also a teacher. But it is striking to see him arrive at the end of an international grouping which includes A serious profession (Thomas Lilti), Dry Herbs (Nuri Bilge Ceylan), Innocence (Hirokazu Kore-eda) and above all The Teachers’ Room (Ilker Çatak).
