    Does anyone know where I can find the above. I'm in need of it for my coursework.

    Thanks
    Michael



    P.S Does this question sound reasonable for an A2 standard assignment do you think there is enough to go at?

    ''Jusqu'à quel point est La Haine une représentation réaliste des problèmes socials qui existent en France chez les jeunes?''

    The above link takes you to Amazon.fr, and something that I think is a script (my dictionary translates the French 'scénario' as 'filmscript/playscript').

    I'm also doing La Haine for my A2 coursework but I don't know what question yet (we've only just started doing work on it and I think that my teacher might make the whole class do the same question). Your question sounds really interesting, as there are loads of angles you could take. If I get the chance to choose the question I do, I'd quite like to compare La Haine with other films or books that show French teenagers/French social problems.

    Yes, it looks really good, I'll probably end up buying it!

    What do you think of La Haine? I think it's really cleverly produced, very interesting, but also incredibly depressing - so much so that I keep putting off my La Haine holiday homework.

    :five: I think 'La Haine' is possibly the best (?) French film in terms of how it's been created, but I refuse to do coursework on it, simply because I find it very depressing and the actual story line quite boring. It's like watching an old man walking around a street late at night, in a circle. That's my opinion anyways:p: I think the best bit about it was when the old man came out of the loos:rolleyes::p:

    Hehe, yeah, the old man moment is a classic :P

    However, I find the film really depressing and am quite annoyed that I don't get any choice about the book/film that is being used for coursework - everyone in my class has to read 'Bonjour Tristesse' and watch 'La Haine' and then do coursework on them. Personally, I'd have preferred a little more choice, although I realise that this would have made my teacher's job much harder.

    Yeah. At my school, we've not been given the chance to read any literature. We HAVE to do our coursework on a film, which is a *****, because I hate films So, my teacher has given me a little slack and told me that I can do a comparison and critique of 'Jean de Florette' in both the film and the book. Still, they don't look very interesting, so I'm going to try to have finished reading Germinal by Émile Zola by the end of these holidays, so I can ask whether it'd be any point in doing the same kind of thing with Germinal, because I know you can get hold of Germinal the film somewhere out there, only it's quite difficult to find. Also, my teachers have no excuse to say "No", either, because they told me they did the exact same thing when they were doing their degrees:p:

    That is really bad! Do you think your teachers are avoiding books because they're more difficult to understand than films? I don't mind films, but I would have preferred to have a little more choice!

    I don't like Jean de Florette either - I was made to watch the film when I was at secondary school and it just seemed really boring. I asked my teacher for some extra reading to do because I need it for uni applications (I'm hoping to apply to Cambridge) and also because I wanted a bit of a challenge and he tried to give me Jean de Florette but I refused to read it! Am reading 'Les Petits Enfants du Siècle' and 'L'Etranger' at the moment.

    I dunno. My teachers say that there's only one choice; a school can either choose literature or film for the coursework component, which I now know is a load of bull:rolleyes:

    :ditto: I'm applying to Oxford this year, and although my teachers know fine well that both Oxford and Cambridge are very literature heavy, they won't let me do a novel for my coursework. I personally think my teachers are just being lazy, so I've taken the initiative to start reading some literature at home on my own. My German teacher is understanding my point and has gotten me some German books for over the holidays to have a read through, but I think the only reason she won't let me do a novel is because my French teacher is her boss:p: Bah:rolleyes: Anyways, I'm reading Germinal at the moment and it's the hardest piece of French literature that I have ever seen:p: However, I'm sure that if I persevere, I'll be able to get the gist of it, and then finally finish l'Étranger which I didn't have the chance to finish because of exams:p:

    We got the choice to do our coursework on anything we wanted - I don't understand why some schools limit it... :confused: I was going to do it on alternative energies in France, but then we watched La Haine in class and I thought that would make a more interesting topic. Did anyone else not really notice that the entire film was in black and white?! To the OP: I'm sure that's fine for A2 level; my title was similar ("Le film « La Haine » : jusqu’à quel point reflète-il la réalité de la vie de la banlieue ?") and I had tons to write about; I had to cut down to fit it all in the word limit. You'll be fine.
