    Christophe Barratier brings us a great masterpiece from French cinema. When I watched this film I was 14 years old and "Les choristes" was my first independent film.

The score is a song to sensitive, a great score by Bruno Coulais. I don't understand why this film has such a low note by experts. Full Review »
