About the Movie

Alors qu’il nage lui-même en pleine tragédie personnelle, Bachir Lazhar, un Algérien de 55 ans, tente de combler le vide laissé dans une école primaire par une enseignante morte subitement. Réalisé avec sensibilité et humour, Monsieur Lazhar est le portrait lumineux de la rencontre de deux mondes, celle d’un immigrant et d’un groupe d’enfants bouleversés qui vaincront ensemble le silence qui les emmure.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "Monsieur Lazhar" is good. Really good. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Apr 27, 2012

Fresh: With a few folds, this story could have made a script for John Barrymore, like Topaze, or for Chaplin. – Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic, May 11, 2012

Fresh: A sad, reflective study of the possibilities, and the impossibilities, inherent in the teacher-student relationship. – Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer, Apr 27, 2012

Fresh: A gentle film can still be searing in its effect on an audience, something that "Monsieur Lazhar" proves emphatically. – Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, May 24, 2012

Bon film!!!

J'ai beaucoup aimé ce film. Il n'est pas dans ma liste de mes préférés mais je dois avouer qu'il est le meilleur de l'année!!! Bravo pour ce petit chef-d'oeuvre!

Excellent, mais pas une comédie

Ce film est émouvant et excellent, mais pour l'amour de dieu pourquoi le définir comme étant une comédie?
