- The Chorus / Les Choristes
Directed by: Christophe Barratier
The Chorus is at times sad, at times amusing and the soundtrack alone is amazing. The story follows a teacher as he starts at a very disciplined boarding school for difficult or forgotten children. He starts a choir and over time the atmosphere at the school improves thanks to his music, especially for one boy who has a hidden talent for singing. The stories of the boys and the situation they now find themselves in is moving and watching the film could be considered a somewhat cathartic experience. The soundtrack for the film is impressive, beautiful and will leave a lasting impression. I would definitely recommend this film to others whether they study French or not.
