About the Movie

An inspirational story in the rich tradition of MUSIC OF THE HEART and MR. HOLLAND'S OPUS, THE CHORUS has moved critics everywhere to declare it one of the year's very best films! When he takes a job teaching music at a school for troubled boys, Clément Mathieu is unprepared for its harsh discipline and depressing atmosphere. But with passion and unconventional teaching methods, he's able to spark his students' interest in music and bring them a newfound joy! It also puts him at odds with the school's overbearing headmaster, however, locking Mathieu in a battle between politics and the determination to change his pupils' lives!

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Corny it may be, but The Chorus does connect. Like all good popular entertainments, the best of it sings. – Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: It says nothing new about its well-worn theme of teacher as deliverer. – Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Ultimately effective on its own unambitious terms, but it's not the freshest thing to come down the pike. – Nelson Pressley, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Sure Chorus may be sentimental cheese, but it comes directly from the heart. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Jul 16, 2008

c'est parfait :)

I have absolutely fallen in love with this movie! We watched it in my French class just a few weeks ago, and I adored it. Really, really great acting and well written. I love the blend of humor and darkness to it. The singing is simply incredible! Just a wonderful movie. Highly reccomend it!

Finally coming to iTunes!

I don't like buying movies, but this is definitely one of them that I am going to buy!
I love the music, the songs and the plot!
The movie is so great and emotional. It brings out pieces of darkness a French movie would have.
Can't wait when I could download it!

Thank You!

I was waiting for some time for iTunes to carry this…..the heart of this movie echoes what's been lost in our society …i love this movie…and seeing Jacques Perrin in this as well as Cinema Paradiso just really makes me feel like these are FILMS! :)
