An exhilarating attempt to merge a writer's life with his subject matter. Noel-Noel writes of his life at a reform school in a novel titled A Cage of Nightingales. The hungry writer takes a job with toy airplane merchant Biscot. Thoughtfully, Biscot has the novel published in the ParisTelegram. Francey, Noel-Noel's girl, reads the story as we see flashbacks of Noel-Noel's brutal reform school days. Overshadowing their delinquency, the film shows the boys as members of an angelic choral group. Fatefully, they are saved from death as the school is destroyed by lightning while

they are at a wedding. The treatment is both refreshing and starkly realistic, devoting equal energy to the sensitivity and cruelty of youth. (In French; English subtitles.)
