I liked the article.  If the film was about the school it wasn’t about nothing, though, eh?  Perhaps it was about “something else,” or about a something that’s not usually the subject of a film, so it just seems like it was about nothing?

Seinfeld, on the other hand, was really about nothing :).

Etre et Avoir wasn’t about nothing.  It was the arguement about small class sizes and schools.  On one hand you have one teacher for twelve kids or so, and on the other you have one teacher for forty.  It shows how, for smaller classes the teacher becomes more of a mentor and friend.  The filming techniques and they way the documentry is put together make it seem kind of pointless.  But even the scenes that seem useless (and there are many) might have a meaning.  Like the lost girl, it could signify how smaller schools are slowly disapearing in France.
