A celebrated conductor of the Bolshoi Orchestra in Moscow loses his post during the Soviet regime when he refuses to fire his Jewish musicians. Twenty-five years later, the man is working as a custodian in the same theatre and helps his wife organize mock demonstrations of communist nostalgia. One day he intercepts an invitation for the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris and decides it is time to bluff his way to a comeback. He agrees to do the concert meant for the official orchestra and rounds up his old orchestra buddies as well as a few hilarious new entries.

The final scene redeems the other 80 minutes of the movie. Keep your expectations low.

Excellent romp if you suspend reality as you have to with most comedies. There is drama, laughs, and Melanie Laurent is of course luminous. The final concert can bring one to tears (as long as you don't look at their fingers!)

This is a delightfully charming and moving film for all those who love classical music and especially the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto. Some suspension of credulity is required, since some elements are far fetched, but all-in-all it is a wonderfully warm and affirming study of the importance of great music to the life of the human soul.

A good performance by all. The final concert was amazing. Subtitles hindered the movie. Overall, a good movie.
