MongoDB/Phalcon How to set OR condition

Hello, I need some help to solve a ODM issue. I try to make an or condition.

In mongo shell, it is:

db.reference_forums.find( { $or: [ { language: 'fr' }, { code: 'mycodehere' } ] } )

The query works fine

In App, My code is:

$forumlist = Forums::find(array(
                '$or' => array(
                    array( 'code' => 'mycodehere'),array( 'language' => 'fr')

This query doesn't work : it returns all element without filter on the condition.

I hope someone else using OR condition query on Phalcon

Many thanks

            array('language' => 'fr')


It works fine, Many thanks
