Les Choristes (or “The Chorus” – The only 2 words that French Level 1 could help me with. )

Watched it on FilmArt Okto just now cos i remembered wanting to catch it in the theares but obviously i didn’t. What a marvelous film this is ! It really caught me by surprise and i was completely taken away by the choir boys. It is like one of those films that will make you wish that you are part of your school’s Choir. Love that it’s in French (can’t imagine in any other language) and love the boys. Love It.

— On 15 January 1949, the former music teacher Clément Mathieu arrives in “Fond de l’ Etang” (“Bottom of the Well”), a boarding school for orphans and problematic boys, to work as an inspector. The place is administrated with iron fist by the cruel director Rachin, and most of the boys have severe punishments for their faults. Clément decides to teach the boys to sing in a choir in their spare time, and identify the musical potential of the rebel Pierre Morhange, the son of a beautiful single mother for whom he feels a crush. He also has a special feeling for the young Pépinot, a boy that expects the visit of his father every Saturday near the gate, but indeed lost his parents in the war. With his methods, Clément changes the lives of the boys, of the other employees and his own. —

Voila.

Here’s my new muse from the movie. When he open his mouth and starts singing, you will open yours as well. Just youtube the trailer of Les Choriste and you will know why. FYI, he is born in 1990. So that doesn’t quite make me a pédophile. 

My new muse –  Jean-Baptiste Maunier
