Entre les murs (English: The Class; lit. "Between the walls") is a 2008 film directed by Laurent Cantet, based on the 2006 novel of the same name by François Bégaudeau. The film received the Palme d'Or at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, making it the first French film in 21 years to do so. The last one was "Sous le soleil de Satan" by Maurice Pialat.

The novel is a semi-autobiographical account of Bégaudeau's experiences as a literature teacher in an inner city middle school in Paris. The film stars François Bégaudeau in the role of the teacher.
