Event Description

To celebrate Europe Day at Blanchardstown Library, we will be screening the French movie ‘Les Choristes’. Our invited guests will be a 2nd year class from Kylemore College along with their teachers. The Chorus (French: Les Choristes) is a 2004 German-Swiss-French drama film directed by Christophe Barratier. The plot involves the widely successful orchestra conductor Pierre Morhange (Jacques Perrin), who returns to France when his mother dies. He reminisces about his childhood inspirations when he and his former classmate Pépinot (Didier Flamand) read the diary of their old music teacher Clément Mathieu (Gérard Jugnot). At the 77th Academy Awards, The Chorus was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Original Song (the latter for “Vois sur ton chemin”, listed as “Look to Your Path”)
