The Chorus (Les Choristes)

If in doubt that this film owes more to Hollywood than Paris, look no further than the stock characters: Pépinot, the cute little orphan at the gate; Boniface, the curly-headed swot with specs; Mondain, the abused and irredeemable bully; the teachers as much victims of the harsh regime as the pupils; and the beautiful and gifted rebel, Pierre Morhange.
