A film that rings true!

For anyone who has memories of being the new kid in a school this films should bring back to you just how awkward the process of adjusting yourself to a new environment and making new friends was. This film has a wonderful realistic approach that would remind you of Godard with a splash of dark humor thrown in for good measure. It's the story of a boy named Benoit moving in to a new town and a new school who tries at first hard to connect with his new classmates.After a disastrous attempt to befriend three boys who ended up being bullies he meet a young foreign girl, spend a couple of days having fun with her but she does a Danny Zuko on him and soon hang out with the popular kids,leaving Benoit left out. As a final attempt in gaining popularity Benoit trow a big party in his house but only 3 people shows up, all three are school outcast and that is were things get interesting. This film is delightful because you really get invested in Benoit Quest for being accepted and you literally squirm and shout Noo! When some of his attempts go awkwardly wrong.Probably because everyone at one time or another were in his shoes. This film is not only about Benoit, it also about the three characters his search for friendship has brought together. Three characters that seems quirky at first only to find out they are just like Benoit, looking for acceptance. If you are looking for a run of the mill teen comedy with sex jokes and outrageous situation stay clear this is a humble little film closer to the films John Hughes used to write in the 80's. It is very funny at times but the humor comes from very real place and is not forced. It is also very poignant and a love letter for the awkward teen years. Funny,dark,sweet and nostalgic, Le nouveau is one of the best Teen comedy France has produced since "La Boom" in the 80's. I highly recommend it!

Fun, enjoyable and heart-warming

I liked this movie. The new pupil, who is main character, is nice and the bullies are really unlikeable. I liked the three who became friends of the new guy. They are nerds and originals and my opinion likable. A watchable movie that is fun, enjoyable and heart warming.

When the politically correct comes to the screen

I saw this movie, because everything I heard and law was good, I thought it was going to be one of those good French comic movies. But a disappointment, I've been bored a lot. He could not wait to finish. The film is based only on saying that people who normally do not relate or have something special are "normal or pest". Is there anyone who does not know that yet? I do not understand what the protagonist does in that group, it has nothing to do with them, it will be the excuse for the film.

The movie, it does not have a hint of grace, in no time. I must be very strange, or at least he has not done anything funny to me.

It has a horrible picture, if it can be called a photograph. Let's not say the address, it has no logic, a constant dizziness, poorly composed.

Unbearable and impolite comrades that we have all had and who is supposed by what tells the film that is the "normal" and to top the girl who seems intelligent does not realize it.

I'll explain something in spoiler zone.

The problem is not that we have already seen it, that if it happens, but if it is a good movie I do not mind seeing the twenty times. The problem is that the film does not attract me, it does not catch me, it does not interest me.

Spoiler: Examples of teachers are even worse than children. They leave the rude, insulting others.

I do not know what the uncle paints in this movie, total for what comes out and tells them, it was not necessary.

When the protagonist manages to be invited for being as he is behave as impolite as the rude, and this has to look good? I say that if we do not like what the rude do, it will have to look bad if the protagonist does.
