The Concert 119 min.
The Concert is an uplifting comedy about a true band of misfits. Impersonating a world famous orchestra isn’t easy . . . unless you have the brass to pull it off.
Andrei Flipov was a prodigy – the celebrated conductor of the Bolshoi Orchestra. Today he still works at the Bolshoi, but as a cleaner. During the communist era he was fired at the height of his fame for refusing to fire all his Jewish players. Today he still works at the Bolshoi, but as a cleaner. Then Andrei finds a fax — an invitation for the orchestra to play at Pleyel, in Paris, as a last minute replacement for the indisposed San Francisco Philharmonic.
