directed by Christophe Barratier. Co-written by Barratier and Philippe Lopes-
Curval (fr), it is an adaptation of the 1945 film A Cage of Nightingales (La Cage aux
rossignols),On 15 January 1949, the former music teacher Clment Mathieu
arrives in "Fond de l' Etang" ("Bottom of the Well"), a boarding school for orphans
and problematic boys, to work as an inspector. The place is administrated with
iron fist by the cruel director Rachin, and most of the boys have severe
punishments for their faults. Clment decides to teach the boys to sing in a choir in
their spare time, and identify the musical potential of the rebel Pierre Morhange,
the son of a beautiful single mother for whom he feels a crush. He also has a
special feeling for the young Ppinot, a boy that expects the visit of his father every
Saturday near the gate, but indeed lost his parents in the war. With his methods,
Clment changes the lives of the boys, of the other employees and his own.
