Few child actors have conveyed the clamped-down angst that van den Bergh does as Nicolas, whose dark home life propels him into a fantasy world on his school ski trip. In his Cannes Jury Prize winner, Class Trip, French director Claude Miller provides only the briefest glimpses of what gives Nicolas his haunted cast — that is, until the film lurches into one of the most audacious tone shifts in cinematic history, as Miller briefly tries on Alfred Hitchcock and Terry Gilliam before settling back into restrained filmmaking. EXTRAS None.
