Middling pablum but touching in parts and worth seeing for Jean-Baptiste Maunier and the singing of Les Petits Chanteurs de Saint-Marc (mixed choir). Maunier turned up again in the 2006 film of Le Grand Meaulnes.

A fine French film though relying on a predictable plotline. Jean-Baptiste Maunier is not only good looking but quite a good singer, too. He plays his part well as do the adult actors. Enchanting and moving. The film is set in 1949 so the scene where the boys are reading through Clement Mathieu's music sheets in the toilets and Mathieu comes in to retrieve them and then is accused of coming on to the boys in a sexual way would not have occurred at that time. Such matters weren't even thought about then.

The DVD extra showing how the film was made and interviewing the boys was almost as good as the film itself!
