    The Chorus is an awesome movie with nice acting, a great storyline and an awesome soundtrack. Even if the plot is a bit cliché (a very good man makes the lives of delinquent boys better with art), it is still awesome and beautiful. The movie takes places in the '40s, a hard time for the world, and it's greatly recreated, everything, from the clothes to the buildings. The soundtrack is wonderful, and the best part is that you hear the songs all the time because it's an essential part of the plot. I don't understand the low ratings by the critics. I give it a 9/10 and I recommend this movie to everyone that has a heart, even a small one. Full Review »

    Like Coach Carter, but for music. It's much better if you watch it in french with subtitles. AMAZING! I loved the music! :)

    "Les Choristes" is the proof of the fact that French cinema is much more than arthouse nonsense. A charming story accompanied by beautiful music and singing, that is easily comprehensive and delightful. Full Review »
