    • Synopsis
    • "Sotto Voce" is an opera movie.  In 1958, in Algeria still under the French occupation, Hassan, a speech-language pathologist, loving the classical music, has formed a chorale made-up of young deaf-mutes to whom he teaches the vocalization. In front of the abuses of the director of the medical establishment, the deaf-mutes kill him. To save them from the death penalty reserved for those who kill a Frenchman, but also to save his dream to reach the glory thanks to this exceptional chorus, Hassan and his pupils are going to flee through the Algerian-Moroccan border, and through the Morice line, an electrified and mined belt of seven hundred kilometers along the borders.
