Synopsis
The film tells a great love story - the story of Marcel and Catherine Cellier and their lifelong dedication to the music of Eastern Europe. Amidst the cold war the couple transcends all borders to collect and document sounds and harmonies never been heard before in the West.
In numerous radio programmes and through selling millions of records Marcel Cellier spreads the music among an international audience, who falls in love with it immediately. He paves the way to fame for musicians like the Rumanian pan flute player Gheorghe Zamfir and the legendary Bulgarian
women’s choir ‘Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares’. Following the traces of the Cellier family the film travels to Eastern Europe to find the protagonists of those days and to resurrect the richness of their music.
