Film: Les Cho­ristes

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - R14EVIEW -

One of my favourite films is 2004’s Les Cho­ristes (The Cho­rus) di­rected by Christophe Bar­ratier. Set in 1948 in France, this film is dis­tin­guished by its beau­ti­ful sound­track and by a very pos­i­tive mes­sage which is driven home by an emo­tional visit to a mis­er­able prison-like school for dis­ad­van­taged boys. An ap­par­ently un­re­mark­able man makes singing a tool for the boys to use to re­move them from the or­di­nary pain of their lives to ex­pe­ri­ence an ex­tra­or­di­nary beauty.
