Anyone seen this new French film about a group of Russian Jewish classical musicians who were blacklisted by Brezhnev's anti-Semitic bureaucrats in 1980 and attempt a comeback as an orchestra through an unlikely but inspired scam? It's totally brilliant: wildly funny, politically thoughtful, unexpectedly moving and with moments of inspired farce as well as deep sadness. The concluding concert scene intercut with images from other times and places is stunningly effective. Ramsey, have you seen this?
