La Classe de Niege (1998)

Classe de Niege, La (1998, FRA) C-97m. ** D: Claude Miller. Starring Clément van den Bergh, Lokman Nalcakan, Francois Roy, Yves Verhoeven. Emmanuelle Bercot. A deeply troubled 12-year-old (van den Bergh) goes on a skiing trip with his school class. Once away from home, his mental imbalance is expressed increasingly in daydreams and nightmares. Technically not as savvy, not as subtly written as perhaps its literary source (by Emmanuel Carrère), film nevertheless manages to flesh out the incompetence of the adults in dealing with psychological problems of children. Winner of the jury prize in Cannes. From the director of DITES-LUI QUE JE L'AIME (1977) and MORTELLE RANDONNEE (1983). Also known as CLASS TRIP.
