Andrei Filipov was the greatest conductor of the famous Bolshoi Orchestra. He was fired as a conductor for not abandoning his Jewish musicians. Thirty years later, he still works at the Bolshoi; but as a janitor. One day he happens upon an invitation for the orchestra to play in Paris. He has a crazy idea. Rather than letting the director of the orchestra know about this, he will get his old musician friends together and they will go perform in Paris.

A musical mission impossible full of delightful suspense.
Survivors/Rocky elevated by sharp satire of ex-USSR and French bureaucracy/politics.
For those who enjoy this film, watch Marguerite, a French take on the life/career of Florence Foster Jenkins.

Great movie! The story is good,uses humor wisely and conects wonderfully with music. I loved the final scene.

This is a gem. Hilarious, tragic, and uplifting. Insight into life in pre- and post-communist Russia as well as an antic behind the scenes glimpse of the music world.

Such a wonderful movie!! I laughed, I cried. Although I didn't believe the first half of the movie was outstanding, the last half more than makes up for it. The final concert fulfills all one's hopes. I can't recommend this highly enough.

The indiscipline members of the orchestra cause a few suspend moments. They are successful to prove their worth at the end. It could not happen in reality. It's for dreamers!
