About the Movie
Set in Montreal, a Year 6 class is shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of their beloved teacher. Having learned of the incident in the newspaper, Bachir Lazhar, a 55 year-old Algerian immigrant, makes his way to the school and offers his services as a substitute teacher. The substantial cultural gap between Lazhar and his class is immediately apparent, but Lazhar soon comes to understand this motley, endearing group.
One of those movies, where you sit, watching the entire time with a lump in your throat, and finally, as the credits roll, you can release. A beautiful, gentile film.
