Movie Info

Thirty years ago, Andrei Filipov was the conductor of the illustrious Bolshoi orchestra until he was fired for using Jewish musicians. Now he works as a janitor and drinks too much. But when he intercepts an invitation for the Bolshoi to perform in Paris, Andrei masterminds a plan to gather his own Bolshoi to go in their place in order to make a triumphant return to the music scene. With a motley bunch of former musicians at his side, Andrei sets off for Paris to fulfill his destiny and return to his glory as a great conductor. Along the way, he will reunite with a young, beautiful violin virtuoso who holds the key to his past and to his future.

Critic Reviews for The Concert (Le concert)

All Critics (66) | Top Critics (20)

  • "The Concert" builds beautifully from a farcical premise that requires a suspension of disbelief to a musical climax that washes away our cynicism in a wave of honest tears.

    Apr 22, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "The Concert" is manipulative, overly sentimental, sometimes ludicrous and almost completely irresistible.

    Mar 24, 2011 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Benefits from clever editing and a credible cinematic representation of the ineffable power of music to ignite the human spirit. Sadly, the magic is way too long in the making.

    Oct 8, 2010 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The Concert was so unfunny, I had to consult IMDB.com to make sure that it was indeed listed as a comedy.

    Aug 6, 2010 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It ends in a place of transcendent emotion that sends everyone out of the theater in a swirl of transport.

    Aug 6, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It's as if the movie simmers unevenly for an hour and a half, and suddenly bursts into glorious flame.
