Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Wonderfully engaging, beautifully paced French film set in a boys reform school in the 1950s. A sympathetic new teacher tries to counter the brutal regime he finds there with compassion and, above all, music.

Everyone enjoyed this film. There was spontaneous applause at the end. This was a serious subject, but the sympathetic portrayals of the main characters, mixed with humour and the beautiful choral singing of the boys, made this a heartwarming story to watch.
