The time is in the future and the youth gang violence is so high that the areas around some schools have become "free-fire zones", into which not even the police will venture. When Miles Langford, the head of Kennedy High School, decides to take his school back from the gangs, robotics specialist Dr. Robert Forrest provides "tactical education units". These are amazingly human-like androids that have been programmed to teach and are supplied with devastatingly effective solutions to discipline problems. So when he violent, out-of-control students of Kennedy High report for class tomorrow, they're going to get a real education... in staying alive!

An exceptional film for so many reasons - standout lead performances, (female!) existentialism, real-life moral complexity, being definitive French New Wave, and an incredible number of cigarettes.

The beginning becomes increasingly tedious until about 20 minutes in when the story actually starts, and then after all that waiting you find out the movie you were waiting for is stupid. So dumb I bailed half way in to fast forward tot he last 15 minutes, and without giving anything away, let's just say that it was sufficient to confirm that the entire movie was dumb, not just the first half.

Sean C (ru) wrote: This is part of a dead breed of film, a lavish historical drama. Unlike other ones this film has heart, astounding cinematography, and creates a world that is lost but not overly romanticized. It is a tale of a strong woman who tries to love one unavailable man only to fall in love with another such soul. Contemporaries have been too hard on this one. I am almost compelled to wage a long campaign in its defense.
