    Of course I don't

    I did my presentation on the film Les Choristes and I chose to examine the sugar coating of darker themes within it (like paedophilia and child abuse). The conversation was mostly about the film, she didn't really ask me much about my presentation though, it was more about random elements of the film so I'm not sure she'd actually seen it haha. Don't be nervous, it's just like a great chance to use your French! I know it's nerve-wracking because it's oral but just try your best, the examiners are always really sweet and understanding.

    Bonne Chance! You'll be great.

    Ooh I'm also doing mine on Les Choristes but on the theme of Mathieu and Pépinot's relationship! Thanks hopefully it'll go okay! What were the cards like? Really hoping for a pollution or racism one, there so much to talk about on those subjects :-)

    Hey, sorry for intruding but I do French as well (although I am with Edexcel instead) and I noticed that you have studied Les Choristes. Basically with Edexcel we have to write an essay on a film/book we have studied and we have also done Les Choristes but we have a really bad teacher so I was wondering whether you had any notes on the film because at the moment I'm really struggling with it and it is making me want to cry

    I also study Les Choristes and my teachers use resources like this https://www.tynesidecinema.co.uk/doc...bb88d01d00124f http://resources.hwb.wales.gov.uk/VT...tes/index.html and
    http://www.filmeducation.org/pdf/film/LesChoristes.pdf and I've found these really helpful! Hope you do too!

    I love Pépinot he's so cute! I'm pretty sure we got only one card and I think mine was on immigration, but there was also one about technology I think. It was such a long time ago now I can't even remember, haha.

    Really sorry to hear that! I don't really have any notes as such, but we focused on certain areas of the film like whether or not Rachin is really evil (you can look at things he does like playing football and giving that kid some food), the role of women in the film and whether or not they sugar coat darker elements of the film with music and stuff.

    I would just advise you to watch it over and over and practise writing the essays. Hope it gets better.
