The Chorus

A Feature film by Christophe Barratier

Produced by Galatée Films

Release in France : 17/03/2004


    1948. Clément Mathieu, an unemployed music teacher, finds a job as proctor in a correctional boarding school for minors.
    Although particularly harsh, the educational policies of the school's director, Rachin, are proving ineffectual.
    Clément sets out to change the pupils' lives by acquainting them with the magic and power of music.
