Barn Cine Club

 

The March film will be The Chorus.

This French film of 2004 is highly recommended by Janet While:

“I went to see The Chorus at Campus West a few years ago – quite reluctantly. On paper it didn’t appeal to me at all – subtitles, just a post war, correctional school for young boys – no, not my cup of tea at all. However, I came out feeling as though I’d been given a huge treat!

Made in 2004, directed by Christophe Barratier, the story follows an unemployed music teacher who accepts the job of proctor in a boarding school. He is stunned by the harsh school routines and the extreme but ineffectual policies of the school’s director. He decides to reach out to the boys through music, which is neither encouraged nor understood by members of the establishment. With his success comes fear, jealousy and all the attendant problems with other members of the staff and the proctor himself.

The film is poignant and sensitive, beautifully acted and filmed. The subtitles do not detract from the viewing and are easily read. It is a lovely, haunting film – don’t miss it!”

Come along for a great evening at the movies (it received Oscar and Golden Globe nominations), and it’s free.

Running time: 97 minutes.
