The Chorus ( aka Les Choristes )

When he takes a job teaching music at a school for troubled boys, Clement Mathieu (Gerard Jugnot) is unprepared for its harsh discipline and depressing atmosphere. But with passion and unconventional teaching methods, he's able to spark his students' interest in music and bring them a newfound joy!
