This Week’s Must-See Foreign Movie

Everyone admires or loves Philippe Falardeau’s “Monsieur Lazhar,” being released this week. A 91% Rotten Tomatoes rating. Nominated for the 2011 Best Foreign Language Feature Oscar. Direct, simple, elegant, humane. And very movingly acted, especially by Mohamed Fellag (in the titular role) and young newcomer Sophie Nelisse.
