What about the solo?
Clément Mathieu: Which solo?
Pierre Morhange: My solo.
Clément Mathieu: Oh. Your solo. No, there's no solo. You don't have a bad voice but no-one's indispensible.
While Mathieu is auditioning more than thirty boys in his class to sort them by the pitches of their voices, discontinuities can be perceived in the relative positions of some of the boys. While Pépinot is walking to the left side of the frame after his audition, Boniface and one of the oldest boys can be seen standing together on the lowest step of the stairs in the center of the frame (at 33:43 to 33:45). The scene then cuts to a close-up of Mathieu calling out Boniface's name to sing next (at 33:46 to 33:48). Then the scene cuts to a medium shot of Boniface stepping off the stairs, but the older boy is not beside him (at around 48 mins). In a wider shot (at around 56 mins), the older boy is at the far right of the frame with the baritones and bases having had his audition "off-camera".
