"Etre et Avoir" - a fine movie

I just finished watching Etre et Avoir on BBC2. It's a film about a year in the life of a country schoolmaster in France with a mixed-age class of pupils aged from 4 to 10. It's a really delightful movie, very simple but unexpectedly touching, specially at the end. I had heard of it when it was first released in 2002, but don't think it showed in cinemas in this area. Anyway, I'm really glad to have seen it at last. Read about it, or indeed buy it, here.

And now it really is time for bed!
