Check Out Mélanie Laurent on the UK Poster for 'The Concert'
Although she has starred in other films besides Inglourious Basterds, I fell in love with Mélanie Laurent watching that film and that is one reason why I'm featuring this UK poster for her new film The Concert. The poster comes from Empire and is only the UK version, since Weinstein Company is releasing this in the summer but hasn't unveiled any US marketing for it. The Concert is a French comedy based on a true story about Andrei Simoniovich Filipov, a renowned conductor of the Bolshoi orchestra, who was fired for hiring too many Jewish musicians and was forced to work as a janitor. Laurent plays violinist Anne-Marie Jacquet.
The story follows Filipov, years later, who is now cleaning the office of the current head of the Bolshoi when he intercepts a fax from Paris asking if the Bolshoi will perform at the Chatelet Theatre. So in classic comedy form, Filipov quickly hatches a plan to get the old orchestra back together, travel to Paris and impersonate the Bolshoi as they perform Tchaikovsky’s beloved Violin Concerto in D Major before an adoring audience. This was both written and directed by Romanian filmmaker Radu Mihaileanu, of Train of Life and Live and Become. You can catch a UK trailer for the film right here. Hits theaters in the US on July 23rd. Interested?

After INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, I'll watch Melanie paint a wall.

@3 I agree. Such a shame she didn't get any recognition at the Golden Globes and Oscars.

Looks very good, Laurent needs to be a name known throughout the world, I must thank Tarantino for getting her out there more, hope the film does well and gets the recognition she most definitely deserves.
