Indie Trailer Sunday: Mélanie Laurent Starring in The Concert
A couple of weeks back, we shared the official UK poster for this film called The Concert, starring Mélanie Laurent (Shosanna in Inglorious Basterds) and Aleksei Guskov. The Weinstein Company recently released the official US trailer for the film on Apple so our worth watching indie trailer today is for The Concert. A lot of you will probably be thrown off by this, as it's a wacky comedy that involves a classical orchestra, which is just a weird concept to begin with, but it doesn't look bad at all. In fact, it actually looks pretty good, like lots of fun scenes with great music, so I suggest checking this out. Plus, Mélanie Laurent is just beautiful. Enjoy!

This is based on the true story of Russian conductor of the Bolshoi, Andrei Filipov, who was fired for hiring Jewish musicians. Now working as a janitor, he brings back all of his musicians to play one more concert.
The Concert is both written and directed by French-Romanian filmmaker Radu Mihaileanu, of Train of Life and Live and Become previously. The screenplay was written by Mihaileanu and Matthew Robbins (Mimic, Blood Brothers) & Alain-Michel Blanc (Live and Become, Ezra). This played at the Rome Film Festival and is being distributed by The Weinstein Company. The Concert arrives in very limited theaters on July 23rd.
