Cineschool: French Class Visit Eden Court

Written by Charleston Academy on . Posted in Curriculum

LazharOn Wednesday 13th March, the Higher French class went to Eden Court to watch the French Canadian film Monsieur Lazhar.

At a Montréal primary school, an Algerian immigrant is hired to replace a popular teacher who has committed suicide in her classroom. While helping his students deal with their grief, his own recent loss is revealed.

This absorbing film, set in Montreal, ties together two tragedies and by such a linkage shows our capacity for human understanding and emotional empathy. While that may sound excessively depressing to some, there is hope in this film as the characters, both young and old, try to move on with their lives and cope as best they can.
