Nominations for the 84th Academy Awards will be announced Jan. 24, 2012. Gregory Ashman recently reviewed the film after the premiere over at the Toronto International Film Festival and nothing but high prasie. Here is what he had to say:

Monsieur Lazhar arrives at TIFF within the Special Presentations programme from festival darling Phillippe Falardreau  (La Moitié gauche du frigo, Congorama, C’est pas moi, je le jure!) in astutedly breathtaking and heartfelt fashion. Blending the sometimes complex relationships between teachers and students in a delicate character study- the screenplay was expanded from a one-character play by Evelyne de la Cheneliere- reveals an almost fable-like tale of loss and light seen through the globalized lens of contemporary Montreal school culture”.

Monsieur Lazhar won the best Canadian feature prize at the recent Toronto International Film Festival and also picked up prizes at the Locarno International Film Festival.
