Ciné Sunday: Orchestra Class
(La Mélodie)

Discovery Film Festival

Hugely talented but out of work, classically trained violinist Simon finds himself forced to take a teaching job at an inner-city school in Paris. There he meets Arnold, who’s painfully shy but demonstrates a natural musical talent and the drive to succeed.

Refreshed by Arnold’s commitment and the raw energy of his classmates, Simon rediscovers his enthusiasm for life and his passion for the music he creates. But will the young orchestra class be able to master the musical skills required for an end-of-year performance at the prestigious Paris Philharmonic?
