In CLASS TRIP (LA CLASSE DE NEIGE), Nicolas is an insecure child plagued by visions of disasters and horrible accidents. In his dreams and daydreams he sees his father in a car crash, his brother abducted, and his own classmates shot at by men in white masks. His peers tease him, or simply ignore him. Even Nicolas' teachers are frustrated by his lack of social skills. His paranoid father is of little help. Nicolas disconnects from the world around him, inhabiting his own friendless, nightmarish realm.

On a class trip to the ski country, Hadkann, the class bully, befriends Nicolas and becomes intrigued by his dreams. When Nicolas takes ill, his visions become more intense. The line between reality and hallucination blurs as his startling visions begin to come true. When police find a dead child in the woods, murdered and mutilated, Nicolas knows there is a connection between this crime and his visions, and with Hadkann's help, he sets out to find it.

Claude Miller directs CLASS TRIP with a deft and subtle hand. Adapted from Emmanuel Carrere's acclaimed novel of the same name, Miller takes his audience inside the mind of an emotionally damaged child. He recalls the intense social hierarchy of childhood, combining it with the psychological suspense of an unseen killer, and the haunting beauty of the French countryside. His previous works include ALIAS BETTY and LA PETITE LILI.

CLASS TRIP won the Special Jury Prize at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.
