Les Choristes (The Chorus) Movie Review Summary

Actors: Gerard Jugnot, Francois Berleand, Jean-Baptiste Maunier

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Les Choristes (The Chorus)

In 1949 Clement Mathieu (Jugnot), a washed-out music teacher and composer, gets a last-chance job as a teaching assistant in a boarding school for orphans and troubled kids. The place is directed by a headmaster who believes in strong discipline and harsh punishment. Mathieu starts a choir among the fractious student body, drawing in -- among others -- a very unhappy and rebellious blond kid named Pierre Morhange (Maunier), recently enrolled by his single mother, who has an incredible singing voice. Although the plot is very familiar, this 2004 French movie is still very moving, and was the top draw at the box office in France the year it was released.
