When Andrei intercepts a fax from the Theatre du Chatelet inviting the Bolshoi Orchestra to Paris, he comes up with a crazy idea: hell gather up his old musician friends (now working rag-tag jobs), head to Paris and pretend to be the famed orchestra to play Tchaikovsky's "Violin Concerto. The long-awaited dream to deliver one final performance! Opening at #1 at the French cinema box-office, The Concert is pure entertainment a warm-hearted, joyous story filled with great wit and humanity. The stirring finale set against Tchaikovskys Concerto is simply magnificent.
