You're Human Like the Rest of Them

UK, 1967 (MIFF 1968, Programme 7)

Director: Bryan S. Johnson

This is the tragi-comic story of an ebullient school teacher who comes face to face with death and conquers his fear of it under the cold, disinterested gaze of his class and his colleagues. The dialogue is written in decasyllabic verse and the editing parallels the rhythm of the syllables. Because of the complexities of the cutting, the editing time of the film took four months.

Main Prize: 1968 Tours Festival.
