SECOND CHANCE

   Both heavy and hilarious, French film "The Concert" centers on Andreï Filipov, who was once considered a prodigy as the conductor of the greatest orchestra in Russia. Yet during the communist era, he was fired at his peak for refusing to fire his Jewish players. Now a cleaner at the orchestra’s facility, he seizes a chance to renew his dreams when a fax comes in inviting the orchestra to play in Paris. He steals the message and rounds up his old players — now much older and in varied jobs — in a comical attempt to regain fame and exact revenge. In French and Russian with English subtitles. 6:40 p.m. Miami Dade College Tower Theater, 1508 SW Eighth St., Miami. $5 for MDC students, seniors and Miami Film Society members. $6 others. Details: (305) 643-8706 or www.mdc.edu/culture/tower.htm.

CHAPLIN CLASSIC

   In 1952 restored film "Limelight," Charlie Chaplin plays a once-celebrated comedian who has lost his entertaining abilities. 8 p.m. Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Ave., first floor south, Miami Beach. $8 members. $9 students or seniors. $10 others.

DESPERATE ACT

   Romanian film "If I Want to Whistle I Whistle" follows the two tumultuous final weeks of main character Silviu’s imprisonment in a juvenile detention center. When his estranged mother returns to take the younger brother he raised like a son and a beautiful social worker enters his life, he is driven to a final act of rebellion. In Romanian with English subtitles. 9:15 p.m. Miami Dade College Tower Theater, 1508 SW Eighth St., Miami. $5 for MDC students, seniors and Miami Film Society members. $6 others.

IN THE MINORITY

   "The Time That Remains" is the story of director Elia Suleiman’s life in the Israeli Arab community he grew up in.

Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Ave., first floor south, Miami Beach. $8 members. $9 students or seniors. $10 others. Details: (305) 673-4567 or www.mbcinema.com.
