Monsieur Lazhar

Monsieur Lazhar

2011; French-Canadian; 94 mins; Cert 12A; Dir: Philippe Falardeau

An asylum-seeking Algerian restaurateur passes himself off as a teacher in a Montreal school. He is cheerful and compassionate, with a deep understanding of his (brilliantly-acted) 11-year-old pupils. This is a moving film, offering real insight into grief, exile and the true meaning of education. (Subtitles)
