The Class

 (2008)

The Class Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Based on an autobiographical novel by François Bégaudeau, a drama that follows the year in the life of a French schoolteacher working at a high-school in a tough neighborhood of Paris. Ethnicities, cultures and attitudes often clash in the classroom. As amusing and inspiring as the teenage students can be, their difficult behavior can still jeopardize any teacher's enthusiasm for the low-paying job. Francois insists on an atmosphere of respect and diligence. Neither stuffy nor severe, his extravagant frankness often takes the students by surprise. But his classroom ethics are put to the test when his students begin to challenge his methods.

For more about The Class and the The Class Blu-ray release, see the The Class Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: François Bégaudeau, Franck Keita, Nassim Amrabt, Esmerelda Ouertani, Laura Baquela, Cherif Bounaidja Rachedi
Director: Laurent Cantet

The Class Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Shot on HD video and then transferred to 35mm film, The Class comes back to digital with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's filmic and warm. Director Laurent Cantet shot almost the entire film with three cameras—one on Marin, one trained on specific class members about speak, and the other roaming the class for reactions—and the breezy energy of the cuts is complemented by the ever so slightly grainy texture that overlays the image. There isn't a lot of opportunity for variety, considering the film is shot during the day and mostly in one classroom, but colors are saturated and strong, from the robin's egg blue of the back wall to the students' multi-hued school clothes. With no nighttime or darker scenes, black levels never really get a chance to prove themselves, but the contrast throughout the film is tight and only a few degrees hotter than "real life." The transfer has a good deal of clarity, especially in close-ups, but I did notice a handful of scenes that looked significantly softer than others. This could easily be attributable to the difficulty of quickly pulling focus on a hand-held camera, though, and not necessarily an issue with the transfer itself. Overall, this isn't the sharpest or most spectacular Blu-ray to demo your system, but considering the nature of the film, The Class looks great in high definition.


The Class Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

I was initially tempted to give The Class detention for arriving unprepared on Blu-ray with a mere Dolby TrueHD 3.0 track. The more I listened, however, the less I missed the presence of the two surround channels. While some immersive ambience would've done a lot to put me in the classroom, so to speak, the front channels have a decent spread and are active with plenty of environmental sounds, like the bustle of recess in the courtyard and the hectic mix of shifting, paper shuffling, and whispering that goes on in any junior high class. Voices are perfectly prioritized, even during the most chaotic classroom fracases, and there are no apparent pops, hisses, or compression issues to report. You might not notice it—it didn't strike me until the film was over— but there's no music in the film whatsoever, and the tension is driven solely by the interactions of the characters onscreen. While there's little depth to the dynamic range, and though the track is pumped through only the front three channels, the audio portion of The Class is suitable for such a small, dialogue-driven film.
