Monsieur Lazhar

 (2011)

Monsieur Lazhar Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Bachir Lazhar, an Algerian immigrant, is hired to replace an elementary school teacher who died tragically. While the class goes through a long healing process, nobody in the school is aware of Bachir's painful former life; nor that he is at risk of being deported at any moment. Adapted from Evelyne de la Cheneliere's play, Bachir Lazhar depicts the encounter between two distant worlds and the power of self-expression. Using great sensitivity and humor, Philippe Falardeau follows a humble man who is ready to transcend his own loss in order to accompany children beyond the silence and taboo of death.

For more about Monsieur Lazhar and the Monsieur Lazhar Blu-ray release, see Monsieur Lazhar Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Mohamed Fellag, Sophie Nélisse, Émilien Néron
Director: Philippe Falardeau

Monsieur Lazhar Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Monsieur Lazhar is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Music Box Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. For such a relatively small scale film, this high definition presentation is really staggeringly beautiful at times, albeit within an overall limited environment. Fine object detail is superb in the film's many close-ups, and contrast and black levels remain strong throughout this presentation. Colors are very nicely saturated and accurate looking. The film is intentionally understated in its visual vocabulary, so there's not a lot of "wow" material here to work with, but in its own quiet way, Monsieur Lazhar is a real standout offering on Blu-ray, one that opens a virtual window on another world with often startling clarity and precision.


Monsieur Lazhar Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Monsieur Lazhar's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix is, like the film itself, subtle but very effective. The surround channels nicely convey the slightly claustrophobic soundfield of the school (and notice the expert use of directionality when Simon scurries in a panic through various halls after he sees the teacher who has committed suicide early in the film). There are a glut of neatly placed discrete ambient environmental effects, and some of the nicest moments are in the playground scenes or even in Lazhar's classroom when the kids are all piping up over each other. Dialogue is cleanly presented and the mix is very well prioritized, including some delicate underscore cues. Fidelity is excellent, but dynamic range is rather narrow, understandable given the film's low key sonic ambitions. For the record, there's also a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix offered on this Blu-ray disc
