One Response to The Teacher

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Teacher. The extent of the teacher’s actions was revealed at a slow pace by oscillating between the meeting and flashbacks giving the film an enjoyable rhythm. Showing little regard for education the performance of the actor playing the teacher was outstanding. Equally the child actors portrayed authentic students responding to a situation beyond their control. The themes: human nature, abuse of power (or is it opportunism) and ‘governance’ stood out. Set mainly in doors, things such as the period wall paper helped emphasise the era in which the film was set.
    A final thought…As a parent questioned in the meeting What is wrong with helping out others? As an educator…Could I be swayed to give good grades? What would I accept? Confidently nothing…well it would be a lot more than fixing a lamp 😀😜
