This film is excellent for both people who adore foreign films and even those who don't! The story is a tale of Michio and Yasuo, two poor orphans lost amidst a sea of loneliness and hormones. I won't ruin it for anyone but let's just say that their story is indeed a tragic and beautiful one! I was not only enthralled by the superb imagery but the songs sung by the young cast of the film made my heart feel as though it was going to burst with joy! I'm already on the hunt for the soundtrack! The directing is excellent and I was amazed by how stupendously the film moved from scene to scene. The transitions? Amazing! The acting? A+++! Boy's Choir is a must see for everyone, young and old alike!
