"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.

"The Concert" is manipulative, overly sentimental, sometimes ludicrous and almost completely irresistible.

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.

The Concert was so unfunny, I had to consult to make sure that it was indeed listed as a comedy.

It ends in a place of transcendent emotion that sends everyone out of the theater in a swirl of transport.

The action is hindered by clunky expositional dialogue that borders on the slapstick.

A shallow, formulaic and bland piece of cinema, with a wasted performance from Laurent and beautiful music that feels oddly out of place.

Delightful, heartwarming . . .blends serious topic with magic realism. . .All are wonderful to watch, even in surmounting some good-natured stereotypes.

The Concert is never quite as meaningful as it makes itself out to be. That's not to say it isn't entertaining and even occasionally moving.
