Flashback #29: “Monsieur Lazhar”

Flashback #29: “Monsieur Lazhar”


The Festival of discoveries, but also the Festival of comebacks. In 2011, with Monsieur Lazhar, Philippe Falardeau moves the Piazza Grande and is awarded with the Prix du Public UBS. An empathy with the audience that in 2015 – four years later – has been renewed, since the Québequois director came back to Piazza Grande to show his last and awaited movie: Guibord s’en va-t-en guerre (My Internship in Canada).
