THE FILM OF THE DAY

In great financial difficulty following the commercial failure of Beast but Disciplined, director Claude Zidi relaunched his career thanks to his meeting with Daniel Auteuil, spotted on the boards, whom he placed in the star of his new comedy, entitled The Under-Gifted. The film, which attracted nearly 4 million spectators in theaters when it was released in 1980, finally allowed him to return to success.

His pitch, to say the least comical – dunce high school students are forced to obtain their baccalaureate at all costs – is inspired by unusual cheating that has indeed existed. No doubt the reason why this classic of French comedy, champion of television reruns, is still looked at today with tenderness and nostalgia. And because, as Claude Zidi humorously puts it: “There is a new generation of graduates every year: it renews the clientele!”
