Movie Summary

Director:
Christophe Barratier
Released:
2004
Rating:
PG-13
In this gentle French drama from first-time director Christophe Barratier, music teacher Clement Mathieu (Gerard Jugnot) lands a job at a boys' boarding school populated by delinquents and orphans -- and run by a martinet headmaster (Francois Berleand). Sensing potential in the rambunctious ruffians, Mathieu forms a choir to rein in his charges through the transforming power of song, even at the probable cost of his career.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    A runaway hit in France last year and the country's official Oscar entry, is a well-nigh irresistible film celebrating the redemptive power of music.

  • 50

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    A deeply conventional story about truculent or orphaned boys and the gentle soul who finds himself by shaping the tots into a chorus.

  • 50

    Variety Lisa Nesselson

    No stereotype is left unheralded and no heartstring left untugged in this freely adapted remake of Jean Dreville's mostly forgotten "La cage aux rossignols"
