Le concert

Tonight I watched the French movie Le concert with gorgeous Mélanie Laurent. Is this kind of movies like Home, in which part of it is comedy, part is drama. But unlike Home, Le concert is a very well constructed story in which art, politics, social prejudices (Jews, gypsies, Russians), broken dreams and life-debts meet in a "perfect harmony".

Mélanie Laurent is just breath-taking... And beyond all critics of Russian romanticism concerning kitsch, Tschaikovsky's violin concert is definitely one of my favorites. I had never thought of a concert inspiring a movie. Just great!
