LOVELESSNESS IS THE DISEASE, SINGING IS A gigantic hit in France, Christophe Barratier’s feature-film début, Les Choristes / The Chorus, is the newest cinematic incarnation of the old warhorse: the teacher who, through firmness, kindness, and understanding —mostly kindness and understanding—tames the savage hearts of his or her pupils.
Les Choristes was the biggest box-office hit in France in 2004, having sold about 8.6 million tickets.
Les Choristes was inspired by La Cage aux rossignols / A Cage of Nightingales (1945), which was nominated for a Best Original Story Academy Award in 1947.

 Premiere Magazine - Les Choristes   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
What follows is the fairly conventional story of an idealistic supervisor who joins the faculty of a prison-like boarding school, using his failed musical talents to teach the students confidence and discipline through song.
Directed by first-timer Christopher Barratier, Les Choristes follows a long tradition of French boarding-school stories, tracing back to Jean Vigo’s landmark Zéro de conduite (about a boys’ school insurrection) and echoed throughout the years in such exceptional films as François Truffaut’s The 400 Blows and Louis Malle’s Au revoir les enfants.
However, Les Choristes does make one subtle but significant change to the formula: Whereas most French boarding-school stories (like their American counterparts) focus on the students’ point of view, Barratier gives us the supervisor’s perspective instead.

 Les Choristes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Les Choristes (Chorists) also known as The Chorus in English, is a 2004 film directed by Christophe Barratier.
The plot is about a passionate music teacher who arrives at a correctional boarding school for boys and transforms their lives through music.
Not all of the kids are malevolent, however, such as diminutive orphan Pepinot (Maxence Perrin), but that makes no difference to the school's strict and unsympathetic headmaster Rachin (Francis Berleand) who has instilled the mantra "Action Equals Reaction" upon the school.

"Les Partitions" brings the main theme back in oboe and horn, but an ominous tone is heard, representing how the boys must fear the school's headmaster.
"Les Avions En Papier" is another ebullient piece for boys' choir and orchestra, tracing the flights of paper airplanes.

He becomes an assistant-teacher at a boarding school for boys, optimistically called "Le fond de l’etang" (The Bottom of the Pond’).
Since he is a musician and he is writing a choral piece in his free time, he is surprised to learn that there are no music lessons given at Le fond de l’etang.
Les choristes knows to convey an incredible wealth of ideas and thoughts about these themes without ever being preachy or "teacher-like".

Although much prettier and more continental than its peers, Les Choristes (The Chorus) is hardly at the head of its class.
Frankly, this underachiever is an uninspired depiction of a classic tale of inspiration: the teacher who, in the face of utmost tyranny, motivates his class, but then gets tossed out on his derrière.
Les Choristes is set in post-World War II France, in a cold, dilapidated reform school for boys.

The success of Les choristes as a film (with or without the divine music) lies in its not trying to be anything more than what it is, a simple tale that opens up to you instead of manipulating you.

 Les Choristes
Les Choristes is a delightful little film about a newly appointed teacher, Clement Mathieu, who arrives at a wretched reform school for orphaned, abandoned, and psychologically troubled boys, run by a masochistic headmaster.
My predictions of Les Choristes were not entirely wrong, yet interestingly off target.
The feel of the movie was a little reminiscent of Truffaut’s Les Quatre Cents Coups (400 Blows), the musicals Oliver!, and Annie, where authority figures were despotic and insensitive to the needs of the students, allowing flagrant injustices to be perpetrated.

 DVDFILE.COM: The Chorus (Les Choristes) Review
A film wildly popular in its native France and the country's selection for Best Foreign Film Academy Award, The Chorus (Les Choristes) is one of those movies aimed squarely and specifically at a mass audience.
Like Life is Beautiful, Chocolat, and Cinema Paradiso before it, The Chorus is a notably Miramax foreign film, a movie that showcases a non-English spoken language yet offers all the facets of a full-blown mall-friendly Hollywood picture.
There's nothing entirely wrong with the film - nor is there with Les Choristes - but these are not the kind of movies that should be nominated for Oscars (and winning them, in Cinema Paradiso's case).
