DVD Monsieur Lazhar

This is a very touching movie about an Algerian immigrant who has moved to Canada because of the political activities of his wife, who has been murdered along with his children. He is hired as a substitute in an elementary school after the abrupt suicide of a teacher. The teacher and students are all “fragile” but by being together and learning about each other they begin to heal.
