Overview

The Young@Heart Chorus is a vocal group from Northampton, MA, who have earned an international reputation for their unique interpretations of songs by Sonic Youth, the Ramones, and the Clash. However, this isn't a teenage garage band attacking the classic punk rock songbook -- the Young@Heart Chorus is comprised of 22 senior citizens whose average age is 80, and under director Bob Cilman they've gained a degree of fame for their enthusiastic a cappella renditions of well-known rock & roll tunes. Filmmaker Stephen Walker spent several weeks with the members of the Young@Heart Chorus as they rehearsed for their annual concert in Northampton, and Young@Heart is a documentary which offers a look at their rigorous rehearsal process, the background of several members, and their efforts to stay active and think positive, even as their friends succumb to old age. Produced for British television, Young@Heart was screened in competition at the 2007 Los Angeles Film Festival.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
The thought of a documentary about a choir of 80-year-olds performing songs by the Clash and Sonic Youth might be enough to send the average person running for an insulin injection, but for the most part Young@Heart director Stephen Walker keeps the sappiness to a minimum. Occasionally, Walker can't help playing up the inherent cuteness of the conceit, but those moments are more than tempered, however, by film's two most fascinating people -- Bob Cilman and Fred Knittle. Cilman, the dedicated middle-aged director of the choir, treats his senior singers not like helpless retirees, but like the members of the working ensemble he expects them to be. He is a taskmaster who wants things done right, sometimes showing a lack of patience that humanizes both him and his performers. If Cilman had been behind the camera instead of Walker, the movie might have avoided its occasional flights of greeting-card sentimentality. Fred Knittle, an 81-year-old who performs a mesmerizing version of Coldplay's "Fix You" during the film's climactic concert, towers over the film. He is a strong and engaging personality whose remarkable life spirit stands in stark contrast to his obviously declining physical state. As death comes to some of the group members, and we see how those still living react to those events, the movie audience understands that the majority of these people have long since accepted that mortality is close at hand. Knittle faces these cold hard truths with his modesty, his talent, and his appreciation for what he has in the here and now. He and his companions rage against the dying of the light by singing, and what could be more punk than that?

    Loved it

    This was a heartwarming movie. It is not perfect and it does drag a bit, but the singing and the personalities make up for it. I will forever remember the man sitting in a chair because he could not stand up, hooked up to oxygen, singing, &quot Fix You&quot by Coldplay. I ordered this as a gift for all of my family for Christmas. My 81 year old father in particular will enjoy this film.

    Highly Recommended.

    This movie gave me a whole new view and appreciation for growing old. All I can say is I'm going to find a group like this one to join in my old age. Great, fantastic, refreshing, I smiled, I laughed, I cried.

    Young @ Heart will Make Your Heart Sing

    This is a heartwarming documentary about a choir of seniors (70s and older, for the most part) who sing pop and punk hits from recent decades with charm and verve.

    The filmmakers introduce viewers in some depth to several choir members and the director. Their interviews add substance and nuance, and some of their insights are key to appreciating the drama that unfolds as several choir members become ill or worse.

    I also prize this film for its affirmation of the life-giving power of the arts to enrich, strengthen and revitalize us, even when we are not at the height of our powers.

    What an inspiration!

    This documovie was just amazing. I saw it first with my daughter. We laughed and cried. She took her entire family to see it and even the ten year old loved it. It was so inspiring to see seniors struggling to stay viable in their twilight years. It was heart wrenching to see what the aging process does to our minds and our bodies and it was exhilarating to see that you can't keep the spirit down!

    I loved the DVD of "Young at Heart:

    I've shown the "Young at Heart" DVD to friends several times, and loaned it out two or three times, all to rave reviews of loving it, too.
    I live in a retirement commun ity and it will be shown to the residents here in the near future. The members of our 30 voiced choral group will LOVE seeing this DVD.
    Thanks.

    Will bring you to your knees...very compassionate

    I agree with the other reviewers. My mom is 88 with mid level Alzheimer's, and she really got into this movie when we saw it in the theatre. I bought it the day it was available on DVD. Really, you will buckle a few times. When the group sang for the prisoners out in the exercise yard, they were all "like look at the cute old farts coming to sing for us. What, like 'O Suzanna'?" HA, they were all swideswiped, transformed. Give this movie a chance. I hope the movie will revolutionize music programs in senior centers and nursing homes. You wouldn't believe my mother can't tell me what the names are of knife/fork/spoon, but she can dive totally into deeply felt and performed music, especially if she can see it. Very therapeutic.

    Loved this movie!

    I saw it in the theatres and had to buy it for myself -- and I don't buy many movies anymore.

    This is a documentary about a real senior citizens' rock choir. Really, because you just can't make this stuff up.

    It is inspiring, funny, and heartbreaking. Be prepared to be crying from laughter (music videos like "I want to be sedated" are a scream) and from sadness because not everyone is alive by the end.

    If you haven't seen this, don't delay! You won't be scared about the "twilight years" after seeing what these people can do!

    Inspiring...

    I was never one to say &quot I hope I die before I get old&quot . I have embraced what aging brings. That said, I am almost half the age of these incredible human beings. This movie touched me deeply. I have a newfound appreciation for my elders and would love to share this profound, sweet, touching film with everyone I know. It also makes one realize just how fragile and special this life of ours is. I will also tell my customers about this film and recommend it highly (a retail store).
