Here’s something a little more high-bow than usual, it’s the official poster and trailer for The Concert.
The movie sees Inglourious Basterds starlet Melanie Laurent play the part of a young violin player, who helps a former conductor-turned-janitor get revenge on his former employers.
It looks and sounds like it could be a lot of fun. The movie is released July 16th, watch the smaller cinemas to see if they’re showing it.
The official synopsis:
Thirty years ago, Andrei Simoniovich Filipov, 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 the Châtelet Theater in Paris invites 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 Anne-Marie Jacquet, a young virtuoso. If they all overcome the hardships ahead this very special concert will be a triumph.
