Monsieur Lazhar

2011 GENIE & JUTRA WINNER, BEST FILM AND BEST DIRECTOR

When an Algerian immigrant takes over a Montréal elementary school class following the former teacher’s suicide, there are lessons to be learned all around in this “transcendent film… [that forms] a tapestry of fraught relationships, weaving issues of parental authority, social taboos and national boundaries… as simple as sunlight, yet as difficult as forgiveness.” (Toronto Star)  English subtitles
