Français

A bientôt cinquante ans, Simon est un violoniste émérite et désabusé. Faute de mieux, il échoue dans un collège parisien pour enseigner le violon aux élèves de la classe de 6ème de Farid. Ses méthodes d’enseignement rigides rendent ses débuts laborieux et ne facilitent pas ses rapports avec des élèves difficiles. Arnold est fasciné par le violon, sa gestuelle et ses sons. Une révélation pour cet enfant à la timidité maladive. Peu à peu, au contact du talent brut d’Arnold et de l’énergie joyeuse du reste de la classe, Simon revit et renoue avec les joies de la musique. Aura-t-il assez d’énergie pour surmonter les obstacles et tenir sa promesse d’emmener les enfants jouer à la Philharmonie ?

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT
One night, my co-writer, Guy Laurent, called me after watching a story about kids in the working-class neighborhood who played classical music. There was indeed an echo between what those children were doing and my own journey. I decided to contact the people in charge of Démos, a socially oriented program for Musical and Orchestral Education, developed by the Philharmonie de Paris. I also took an interest in the orchestra classes overseen by the Ministry of Education. From classroom to classroom, I started to bond with those kids. As I watched them working with their teachers, a story was developing in my head. It is not just about cinema and social phenomenon. La Mélodie reflects the desire to put into words and pictures the faith in life and art against the determinisms (poverty, violence, abandonment, cynicism, etc.) everybody tries to escape, and the urge to depict as accurately as possible life’s disillusions in order to better understand what drives hope.
