Decent movie, but as said above, very linear. Tends to follow pretty much exactly the storyline of the book, except for mentioning a few later events earlier on for the sake of setting things up.
The above poster did a great job of outlining this film. Young boy lives in shantytown. He is born in France to Algerian parents and seeks to improve his lot in life through school. His father constantly insists that "Il faut tout savoir 'a l'e'cole" (You must know everything for school.) Somewhat touching portrait of what is really a fairly sad life. The protagonist of course goes on to become "ministre délégué à la Promotion de l'égalité des chances." (Minister charged with the promotion of the equality of opportunity)
