Festive Films and Golden Village Pictures are proud to announce that Radu Mihaileanu’s THE CONCERT (Le concert) has received six nominations, including the "Best Film" category, at the French CĂ©sar Awards. The dramatic comedy revolves around Andrei Filipov, conductor of the Bolshoi Theater orchestra and the greatest conductor in the Soviet Union, fired at the peak of his career because he refused to part ways with his Jewish musicians. Thirty years later, Filipov is still working at the Bolshoi Theater but as a janitor, when one night, while cleaning the office of the director, he steals a fax revealing that the Russian orchestra has been invited to play at famous Pleyel Hall in Paris. He calls his former colleagues, and they decide to pass themselves off as members of the Bolshoi Orchestra. THE CONCERT is slated for release in March 2010.
