The Concert

An Uplifting Comedy About a True Band of Misfits.


The Concert
Thirty years ago, the renowned conductor of the Bolshoi orchestra, was fired for hiring Jewish musicians. Now a mere cleaning man at the Bolshoi, he learns by accident that a theater in Paris has invited the Bolshoi orchestra to play there. He decides to gather together his former musicians and to perform in Paris in the place of the current Bolshoi orchestra. As a solo violin player to accompany his old Jewish or Gypsy musicians he wants a pretty young virtuoso. If they all overcome the hardships ahead this very special concert will be a triumph. In French language with English subtitles.
