They received a note explaining

The big news for this year.

Were no longer a classic high school.

Were now a "pilot" high school

This is a cause for pride.

The opportunity to start a new basis,

to experience...

New teaching guidelines...,

handcuffed to the traditions...

The uniform...,

for all students...

...In a school with a public

socially diverse...

...The uniform is a symbol


Yes, bold, will finally be

the same for all students...

... a brand of equality.


How was it?

You could have come.

- It's been so long since I went to church.

- There was a mass. Bruno was buried.

I was neither family,

or a friend of Bruno.

I dont want to be alone.

I wanted to talk to someone.

I saw the twins.

They described Bruno to me.

I didnt know if I had to give my

condolences, but when I was...

...One of the two approached me,

impossible to know,...

...And told me they were going to come by the

gallery tomorrow to talk about the future.


- You hear me?

- Yeah, yeah.

- Shall I change and go to the movies?

- Okay, we're going to correct and finish.

Listen to this:

Saturday ate pizza and watched TV,

Sunday I did nothing, I was tired.

He was given 30min. Two sentences!

Tele-pizza, Sunday: Nothing!

I asked for a poem in verses,

just tell me your about weekend...

...To see if they could write more

than two sentences. And Theyre able!

Listen to this:

Not like Sundays.

On Saturdays I do like...

... but on Saturday my father would

not let me out, and I took my phone.

I wanted to convey the teaching

taste for literature...

And I find... what?

Cellular and pizzas!

The worst isnt ignorance.

It's the future. Theyre the future!

Reactionary philosophers

predict the invasion of the barbarians...

...But Theyre in our classes!

"My last weekend."

Claude Garcia.

On Saturday, I went to study where

Raphael Artol...

Thanks, honey.

I had that idea because the weather was

I wanted to get into your home.

Last summer, every afternoon, I went

to look at your home from the park...

... but one night, I saw your mother

peering from the sidewalk out front.

Friday, taking advantage of Rafa

had fared poorly in math,...

... I offered help with the workshops

and tasks.

Obviously, it was only a pretext, I knew

that if accepted, I would go to his house...

... since I live in a neighbourhood

where Rafa will never come.

11am touched the bell,

and finally the house was opened to me.

I followed Rafa to his room,

its just as I had imagined...

busy... I left with a problem


... and on the pretext of fetching

a Coke, I explored the house,...

... this very house in which,

many times I had imagined being inside.

Its much larger

than I thought...

mine would... fit 4 times inside

everything is clean and tidy.

"Enough for today," I thought...

... and just when I was coming back

François Ozon (French: [fʁɑ̃.swa o.zɔ̃]; born 15 November 1967) is a French film director and screenwriter whose films are usually characterized by sharp satirical wit and a freewheeling view on human sexuality.
