    Immensely moved, especially by the fact that original scores which survived the camp were used for the vocal orchestra.

  1. But the inspirational aspects of the tale--which mainly has to do with the determination of Close to form a vocal orchestra at the camp, despite the class divisions between the women--never quite carry the dramatic impact they're supposed to.
  2. The story has charming and uplifting moments as well as strong performances by an impressive cast.

    A queasy union of savagery and uplift, the film ought to be unnerving. Instead, it finally becomes routine. [18Apr1997 Pg. C.07]
