François Ozon. France, 2012. Original version, Spanish subtitles. 101'.
A jaded professor of French literature (Fabrice Luchini) who is unmotivated by his students' dull and uninspired papers, is excited to discover that a boy sitting at the back of the room (Ernst Umhauer) shows an acute sense of observation in his work. The boy is fascinated by the family of one of his classmates and writes, encouraged by the professor, a kind of novel about them. Before the screening the Franco-Belgian musician Álvaro Gastmans (8.45pm) performs his chansons live.
