Critic Reviews for The Chorus (Les Choristes)
It never aims higher than a sweet sort of middling. And it succeeds.
There's very little in The Chorus you haven't seen before, but the movie's depth of sentiment -- especially its profound humanism -- makes it worth experiencing again.
Ultimately effective on its own unambitious terms, but it's not the freshest thing to come down the pike.
Rises above feelgood status by virtue of its credible acting and outstanding score.
We smile and maybe even weep on cue, but we're still kept at a distance looking in, peering through a pretty window.
Audience Reviews for The Chorus (Les Choristes)
It is very easy to feel enchanted by the beautiful songs and the accessible, formulaic narrative, but the problem is that this film is in fact a silly fantasy that could hardly take place in real life, with a predictable plot and all those clichés found in movies about inspirational teachers.
Touching and moving film about the profound impact youth and hope can have on the roadweary willing to take chances and accept the hands dealt...and vice versa. Really worth seeing for anyone who was inspired by a teacher in their youth or who thinks thay may have inspired others.
Beautiful movie! Sweet. Heart warming. Charming. The actual chorus of young children they used for this movie sang like angels. This little film gives me hope that if children are engaged in the arts in some form, it becomes possible for them to overcome, or at least survive, the damage of earlier years of neglect.
