This enchanting, compelling film is a slice of reality served poignantly by writer and director Philippe Falardeau, based on the play by Evelyne de la Cheneliere addressing loss, trauma, guilt; young and mature souls , seeking a curative redemption. ... Rarely will you see a movie so perfectly balanced; with flawless pace and grace the plot unfolds, unmasking the pain of both instructor and pupils; nothing is as it seems. Monsieur Lazhar employs unconventional methods to ignite the imaginations and skills of his young, tortured charges. ... Many have had a "Monsieur Lazhar” in their lives; a teacher whose inspiration, devotion, passion opened windows of wisdom, unknown, dormant vistas, erasing barriers blocking creativity; with their electrifying stimulation, came recognition, accomplishment; a life of fulfillment, contentment, knowing you tested the waters and swam, maybe not at the Olympic level, but a medal winner, nonetheless. ... for complete review visit ***

Wonderful film from start to finish. It covers many topics.....most importantly is the profound importance teachers play in the lives of children especially their emotional development. Life isn't black and white. Right or wrong. This heartfelt and moving film explores the stories of people's lives and events that shape us. It's small and profoundly large in its exploration. Truly moving.
