On TV5 Monde at 21: 00

Technical data sheet

Release Date : August 28, 2002 (1h44min)

Directed by Nicolas Philibert

Genre : Documentary

Nationality : French

Distributor : Les Films du Losange

Box-Office France : 1 815 603 entries


In a small rural town in the Auvergne region, the primary school is ensured by a single school teacher, Georges Lopez, who welcomed into his classroom fifteen children whose level ranges from kindergarten to CM2. The documentary focuses on the conditions of teaching and living in this particular framework, the relationship between students and their teacher, as well as the relationship between the teacher and the parents of the students. The pedagogical approach of the teacher is highlighted.

Unlike most documentaries, this one has no voice-over commentary.


To be and to have has been well received by critics, who praised its simplicity and emphasized the emotion generated by the players. The editing work of Nicolas Philibert has been rewarded by a César, and the film has received numerous awards. To the surprise of the director, the film has encountered a big success with the public and has been seen by nearly two million spectators in France and over a million in total in the seventeen countries where it is released. It was the twentieth film most seen in the cinema in France in 2002 and represents the most important success in the gym for a documentary and non-animal.

Subsequently, the film was the subject of a controversy when, in view of the success, the teacher as well as the families of the children filmed were estimated to have been abused by the director and have claimed their share on the profits of the film, as well as a law on the commercial use of their image, which has reignited the debate about the future of documentary films.


• Cesar for best editing Nicolas Philibert in 2003

• Prix Louis-Delluc in 2002

• Gold star of the 2003 film

• European film prize – category “documentary”

• Festival of Valladolid 2002 – Price “Tiempo de historia”
