Gavronsky, Serge Silver_nugget
France on Film

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

I agree that Gavronsky is a pretty amazing person. He's seen a lot and will relay a lot of information to you, especially if you ask him. I personally liked the class, I learned a lot about France and its tainted history that I wasn't cognizant of before. The only thing I found increasingly difficult was experiencing sycophantic pseudo-intellectualism. No, I'm not talking about Gavronsky, he is a smart one, I'm talking about the people in the class that would stop at no costs to impress him. In fact, I'm pretty sure some of the previous reviews are BY them. Don't let that deter you from taking the class though, Gavronsky is worth it, and you will really see a representation of France and the French on film through the decades.
