Today's Film: 

French producer and musician Christophe Barratier makes his directorial debut with the drama Les Choristes, inspired by the 1947 film La Cage aux Rossignols.   Wildly successful orchestra conductor Pierre Morhange (Jacques Perrin) returns home when his mother dies.  He recollects his childhood inspirations through the pages of a diary kept by his old music teacher Clément Mathieu (Gérard Jugnot).   Back in the late '40s, little Pierre (Jean-Baptiste Maunier) is the badly behaved son of single mother Violette (Marie Bunel).   He attends a dreary boarding school presided over by strict headmaster Rachin (François Berléand).   New teacher Mathieu brightens up the place and organizes a choir, leading to the discovery of Pierre's musical talents.   Featuring performances by Les Petits Chanteurs de Saint-Marc Choir.   Les Choristes was shown at the Berlin Film Festival in 2004. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
