Le ConcertBy a customer from Bristol , 20 Jul 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]Great film. I haven't laughed so much in a long time. A delightful story, with some moving scenes without being sentimental. A real joy to watch

Wonderfully uplifting, moving & hilarious filmBy a customer , 20 Jan 2013Wonderfully uplifting, moving and hilarious film about the righting of wrongs and the overcoming of hardships to celebrate beauty and harmony in music. Watched and enjoyed by our family with age-range from 16 to 88. Very strong cast and delightful Russian humour, scripted to maximise drama with clever juxtaposition of despair and comedy interwoven with sublime music to heighten emotion. Highly recommended.
Hollywood just can't make films this goodBy whp8 (21 reviews) from Sturminster Newton , 31 Dec 2012Now I know the description doesn't sound instantly appealing, but this is a cracking film of the type Hollywood just couldn't make no matter how hard it tried. It is emotional without being sentimental, very funny and quirky, with a great 'underdog' plot. Thoroughly recommend it.
historical confusionBy easytiger2 (2 reviews) , 12 Dec 2012This a lovely fantasy film. However, it is impossible to sack Jewish musiciaNS from Bolshoi ochestra as they all were and will be Jewish. Russians were not Nazis, I think there is a historical confusion there. Other then that quite a decent film
Bravo EncoreBy PeteGuildford (3 reviews) , 12 Dec 2012Wonderful feel-good movie celebrating the human spirit overcoming all obstacles in its way. A clever and original work with a talented cast.
Franco Russian Full MontyBy GallenMcGriff (3 reviews) , 21 Nov 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]A cracking movie.
Light hearted unlikely tale, which ultimately tugs at the heart strings.
Worth sticking with until the dramatic finale.
