Monsieur Lazhar


94 min. minutes | Rated PG-13

The expertly photographed, edited, acted, and directed Monsieur Lazhar is about two inhabitants of the city of Montreal. One of the subjects is an immigrant from Algeria, Bachir Lazhar, who takes a job as a replacement teacher in an elementary school after the original teacher commits suicide. The other subject is a French Canadian girl, a student in his class. One stranger understands the other stranger's soul. Though coming from different parts of the world, they are made of something that's similar. (CHARLES MUDEDE)
