By getting nominated for Academy Awards in both the Foreign Language Film and Best Song categories, Les Choristes (The Chorus) made a rare (for a European film) double impression at the 2004 Oscars. This sentimental tale follows the arrival of a new teacher at a remote boys school in 1949 France (the war is a largely unspoken but ghostly presence). With disciplinary problems rampant, and the policies of the old-fashioned headmaster not helping, Monsieur Mathieu decides to introduce choral singing as a way to bridge the gap with his students. You don't need a crystal ball to figure out where this will go, although the movie uses its atmospheric location and lush vocal arrangements well. Bald, dumpy Gerard Jugnot provides a refreshingly offbeat hero: he's sort of a younger Philippe Noiret. Director Christophe Barratier works in the winsome-cute mode that makes a certain kind of French movie into an overly sweet bon bon, although at least this bon bon sings. --Robert Horton, Amazon.com --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Don't be put off by the subtitles, the characters and plot make you forget you have to read them, even if French is not your first language.
I loved every moment of this, and watched it twice two days running. Gorgeous.
This film is about a boys reform school where conditions and treatment of the boys are harsh but it was uplifting nevertheless. I felt there were one or two loose story ends that might have been pursued a little further. Basically I would have liked another 20 minutes of it. But loved the ending. Well worth watching and well worth buying to have on your shelf.
So many better French films her school could have chosen... what a shame.
