The Conductor, from famed Russian maestro Pavel Lungin, starts off as a backstage melodrama and ends deep in metaphysical territory. This shift in dramatic intent and momentum shouldn’t be any surprise to punters who’ve seen his recent pictures The Island (2006) and Tsar (2009).

A famous Russian conductor, Vyacheslav Petrov (Vladas Bagdonas) takes his orchestra to Jerusalem to perform a special rendition of the St. Matthew Passion oratorio. However, an ominous fax message he receives prior to departing forces him to re-evaluate his life, curiously thrusting his whole orchestra under the spotlight, questioning the very values we live by and the invisible bonds that shape our lives.
