Our next movie in this celebration of French cinema was a surprise hit at the French box office in 2004. 'Les Choristes' is an adaptation of the 1945 film A Cage of Nightingales (La Cage aux rossignols). The story is inspired by the origin of the boys' choir The Little Singers of Paris. The original French title translates as "The Choristers" or "The Choirboys", but was released as 'The Chorus' in the UK. At the 77th Academy Awards, The Chorus was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Original Song. It won numerous awards in France. Synopsis: A memorable entry in the genre of inspirational pedagogical films, THE CHORUS is an uplifting tale of a masterful teacher who put his heart into his work and changed the lives of his students forever. With a soundtrack of boys' singing, the lovely music of this film is the glue that will stick to viewers long after watching it. Set in 1940s rural France, at a school for poor boys who are delinquent or orphaned, the story feels timeless in the way that it captures a crucial moment in the lives of the boys involved. Ranging from early elementary school level to junior high, the boys struggle for independence and self-expression. We will show the film in the supreme coziness of Belfast's fabulous Beanbag Cinema, in Cathedral Quarter.
