based on a true story

Based on the life of Andrei Simoniovich Filipov The Concert tells the tale of the great conductor who was blackballed for hiring Jewish musicians. 30 years later, while working as a janitor at the Bolshoi, Filipov (played here by Aleksei Guskov) hijacks a concert reuniting his old orchestra in an attempt to finally finish the concert which began three decades earlier. Melanie Laurent (Inglorious Basterds) stars as the young virtuoso who Filipov picks for the performance. The film is currently in limited release in select cities.
