...but me and my wife found the film worthy of 4 stars. She works in a school and could relate to the reality of the teachers lives and teaching in general. From apathetic kids to teachers who reminisce over the days when parents filled the school on parents evening.

From a personal viewpoint, yes the film can be viewed as depressing however it could also be viewed as uplifting.


- Barthes had the heart to look after his grandfather by continuing to visit him even though he knew that he was responsible for abusing his mother.
- Barthes ultimately succeeds in creating a bond and not being detached by helping Erica. The last scene is wonderful when he visits her at the foster home.
- The fact that we see so many dysfunctional relationships between the teachers and their families at home could be reason enough to move us to be better within our own lives.

Watch this film as it deserves more than the meagre 2 stars given to it by Ms Errigo!

The guy rates the film lower because it was depressing. That means, because it was able to move him from one emotional state to another via plot devices and convincing acting, it is a detriment to the film? This reviewer should stick to Pixar.
