Nominated for Best Foreign Film Oscar! “It isnít backhanded praise to say Phillippe Falardeauís greatest skill lies in his ability to direct child actors. His last film, 2008ís Itís Not Me, I Swear! (Cíest Pas Moi, Je Le Jure!) cast young Antoine Lí…cuyer as a 10-year-old whose initial precociousness curdles when his mother abandons him, revealing believable layers in his characterization of pre-adolescence in revolt. Falardeauís latest, Monsieur Lazhar, similarly hinges on credible performances by a bunch of 10-year-olds, who are collectively devastated when their grade-six teacher hangs herself in the classroom.
