This film represented Canada at the 2011 Academy Awards in the category of Best Foreign Language Film. It is charming, human and features some outstanding performances.

Touching film. Somehow utterly Canadian yet borderless at the same time. Well done.

This movie manages to cover a whole range of social issues without ever being preachy. A popular homeroom teacher in a Quebec Catholic school hangs herself in her classroom during mid-day break and the harassed principal, desperate to find a substitute quickly (nobody wants to replace a classroom suicide), takes on an Egyptian immigrant. And that sets the stage for multiple issues — underfunded schools, different styles of teaching, stressed out teachers, how to effectively maintain discipline or show sympathy without touching students, the refugee process, and so much more. The acting is impeccable — Fellag as Lazhar and Sophie Nélisse as the little girl central to the story are so convincing it's hard to believe they aren't the characters they play. It's a gentle, thoughtful, thoroughly engrossing movie that doesn't pander to any notions of political correctness. Can't recommend it enough.

I love this movie, I first saw it at our local Foreign Film festival and had to have it.....I lend it out to my "buds" ocassionally, I do not want to lose it so I am very particular to whom I lend it.
