When he takes a job teaching music at a school for troubled boys, Clement Mathieu 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. It also puts him at odds with the school’s overbearing headmaster however, locking Mathieu in a battle between politics and the determination to change his pupils’ lives.
This screening is part of the Francophonie week. Organised every year around the 20th of March, which is the « International Francophonie day » as well as the International week of Francophonie and the French Language, this event is the annual rendez-vous of the lovers of French language across the world.
