Zéro De Conduite

1933  |  42 min
Rated PG by the BBFC


Jean Vigo's anarchic film details the rebellion of a group of French schoolboys against the discipline and austerity of their squalid boarding school. Made in 1933, a year before Vigo's final film 'L'Atalante', 'Zéro de Conduite' was banned until 1945 and only recently restored. Its themes strongly influenced Lindsay Anderson's 1968 film 'If...'.
