MON­SIEUR LAHZAR

WORLD MOVIES ( FOXTEL) 7.20pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

THIS is a beau­ti­ful, qui­etly pow­er­ful movie about an Al­ge­rian im­mi­grant Bachir Lazhar ( Mo­hamed Fel­lag) who of­fers his ser­vices as a sub­sti­tute teacher to a Mon­treal pri­mary school, mourn­ing the sui­cide death of a well- liked teacher in her class­room. He hides his own per­sonal tragedy as he goes about heal­ing the chil­dren with their own trauma – es­pe­cially two young stu­dents Alice ( So­phie Nelisse) and Si­mon ( Em­i­lien Neron) – who blames them­selves for her death.
