A Chorus of Angels (DVD)
"A Chorus of Angels"
A teacher, Kawashima Haru (Yoshinaga Sayuri), arrives on a remote island, north of Hokkaido. She has accompanied her husband, Yukio, to become the teacher of six students. Once Haru discovers the children’s beautiful singing voices, she brightens their spirits by leading them in a chorus. Smiles now break out on the faces of the children, who had been bored at school before her arrival. Their angelic voices reverberate across the wilderness, warmly basking the residents’ hearts. But one summer’s day, Haru’s husband dies in an accident on a picnic with her students. The terrible wound in Haru’s heart causes her to abandon her worried father and flee the island. Twenty years later, Haru, who works as a librarian in Tokyo, hears about a murder committed by one of her former students. Determined to learn the truth about the murder, and to reunite with her students, Haru heads north. As she talks with each of them she gradually brings to light the secret feelings they had each harbored about the accident 20 years ago.
