In this grim slice-of-life film, the dead-end future of a number of young French teenagers living in a northern mining town is closely examined. Some lapse into debauchery, others enter into loveless marriages. A few even stay the course and get their diplomas, which qualify them to do the same meaningless jobs they would be doing without diplomas. One or two flee to Paris, and try their luck in that rat race.~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide
