Aging opera singer Joachim Dallayrac retires from the stage and retreats to the countryside to school two young singers, Sophie and Jean. Although the rigorous training takes its toll on both teacher and students, there is plenty of time for relationships to develop between the three. Based on their teacher's reputation, Sophie and Jean are invited to participate in a singing contest staged by Prince Scotti. Scotti's protege is set up to get revenge for Scotti's defeat at the hands of Dallayrac in a similar competition many years ago. The young students overcome Scotti's trickery to win the competition.

Chris W (de) wrote: This is Steve Buscemi's third outing as a feature director (and first where he doesn't direct himself). What we have is a wry, deadpan dramedy (emphasis on drama, since most of the humor is bone dry and deadpan) about Jom- a perpetually glum 27 year-old aspiring writer who, after failing to make it in New York, returns to live with his parents in their small Indiana town in order to try to get his life back together.He's got all sorts of things to deal with. His dad is a chronic sour puss, his mom is amazingly cheerful, and his older brother Tim (a divorced father of two whose business ventures have failed) also lives with their parents, who own a lumber and ladder factory where Jim's Uncle Stacy, aka Evil, uses it as a front for drug dealing.After his brother unsuccessfully attempt suicide, Jim finds himself forced to take his brother's place, which means working for their parents and coaching a girl's basketball team that hasn't even scored one basket in the past 14 games. Things are looking even less hopeful, but that starts to change when Jim begins a tentative romance with a kind nurse and single mother named Anika who seems determined to help get him out of his funk.It really doesn't surprise me that Buscemi would helm a slice of life indie about a depressed sad sack. I mean, he did it once before, and that movie (Trees Lounge) is one of my all-time favorites. This second foray into that territory, but doesn't have quite the same impact as the earlier one. For one, it's not as funny, or at least not as overtly funny. Well, aside from Mark Boone Junior as Evil, that is. This one is good, but it's less optimistic, though still just as realistic. It definitely scores points for being wonderfully low-key and very nuanced, that's for sure. I liked it, but I think that the material just isn't as strong. It does have some really good performances, however.All in all, a decent movie, but probably Buscemi's weakest as a director (so far). Even then, it's still not too bad, so give it a watch.

After gathering all children off the streets and putting them in the classroom he establishes a life-changing relationship with the children. A must see film... even more enjoyable if you are from the southern part of Italy...

Is so desperate to do right, he does everything Horrible wrong. Jonathan Brandis (my childhood crush and most memorable for The never Ending story 2). Is the talented but chemically imbalanced stepson who's empathy get's him unwillingly involved in a scandalous situation.

Jennifer M (ru) wrote: I am a loyal James Patterson fan who wanted desperately to love this movie. I thoroughly enjoyed the book; however, when I found out that Tyler Perry, and not Idris Elba, would be starring as the title character, I already knew I wouldn't enjoy it as much as I should. Tyler Perry is a very good director and a strong actor, but I think he came off "too strong". In my opinion, he was overworking the role to distinguish himself from his well-known Madea, instead of just being "Alex Cross". Matthew Fox does an admirable job in the role of the villain. But Perry and Fox didn't stand a chance with making this movie as strong as the book with the haphazard direction of Rob Cohen.
