Interesting, moving and beautiful.
19 February 2012 | by (Leipzig, Germany) – See all my reviews

I wasn't sure what to expect from this two hour documentary about a boys' choir, but I was both charmed and entertained. I also gained real insight into the kind of life these boys and young men lead as part of a boarding school,...and one of the best choirs in the world.

I think the film-makers did a great job of showing the hard work, passion and occasionally, tears that are part of the extraordinary commitment these boys and their families make, and the musical parts of the film are, at times, truly breath-taking. I found myself wishing they could be longer!

It's a beautiful film to look at, too. The churches, concert halls, cities and other locations are the 'guest stars', but the 'Thomaner' themselves really steal this show.

Well worth seeing, and not just for Bach fans. I saw it in German, but I hope the DVD version has subtitles - this film deserves a wider audience.
