Zero for Conduct

Jean Vigo's 1933 masterpiece charts the rebellion of three young French boys in a sordid little provincial boarding school. A wholly original creation, the film walks a narrow line between surrealist farce and social realism. The most famous sequence, which leads directly to Lindsay Anderson's If . . . , has the boys atop the school on graduation day, merrily dumping garbage on the assembled dignitaries—some of whom are cardboard cutouts. In French with subtitles.
