Waterford St Herblain Cultural & Language Exchange presents….

Monsieur Lazhar

At Greyfriars Municipal Art Gallery on Tuesday the 24th of October at 6:30pm

In Montreal, an elementary school teacher dies abruptly. Having learned of the incident in the newspaper, Bachir Lazhar (Mohamed Fellag), a 55-year-old Algerian immigrant, goes to the school to offer his services as a substitute teacher. Quickly hired to replace the deceased, he finds himself in an establishment in crisis.

Monsieur Lazhar is a picture that’s genuinely charming while delivering a potent emotional impact; Philippe Falardeau’s direction is a model of the notion that less is more, and this film is a treat well worth savouring.

French film with English subtitles.
