The Organizer (1963)
François Périer: Maestro Di Meo
Maestro Di Meo : I'm here to help you. Let's be clear for once. To vote in the elections you have to know how to write. It's our beloved government's law. In these rough benches you earn the right to intervene in parliament. This classroom has to be the center of our intelligence, of a new fresh strength, that feeds an ever growing flame...
Maestro Di Meo : "Death to the King." Barbero, Barbero, what have you written? This is what you came up with? Lads, I share your sentiments, but you must realize that becoming educated is also about acquiring discipline and self-control!
School Principal : Teach your pupils good citizenship - - period! You're not hired to engage in subversive activity!
Maestro Di Meo : Subversive! It's a simple act of compassion for a deceased worker. It's a wonderful lesson for the children!
School Principal : Don't shout at me!
Maestro Di Meo : We should just keep teaching them about tyranny and servitude!
School Principal : Enough! I'm going to report you!
Maestro Di Meo : Fine! I'll write the report myself so it's not full of stupid blunders! Pompous ass!
