Jethro Tull - Live at Montreux, 2003 is a concert film that captures British prog-rock legends Jethro Tull performing live at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland in 2003. The movie features the classic Jethro Tull lineup of Ian Anderson on vocals, flute, acoustic guitar, and percussion, Martin Barre on electric guitar, Andrew Giddings on keyboards, Hammond organ, and accordion, Jonathan Noyce on bass guitar, and Doane Perry on drums, along with a guest appearance by former Jethro Tull member Clive Bunker on percussion.

The 19-song setlist includes some of Jethro Tull's most beloved songs, such as "Budapest," "Aqualung," "Medley: A Song for Jeffrey / To Be Sad Is a Mad Way to Be," "Thick as a Brick," and "Locomotive Breath." Anderson's dynamic stage presence and eclectic musical talents are on full display, as he plays a wide range of instruments and performs his trademark stage moves, from his one-legged flute playing to his dancerly leaps and twirls. Barre's blistering guitar solos are a highlight of the show, as are Giddings' textured keyboard and accordion playing, which add layers of atmosphere to the already rich sonic tapestry of Jethro Tull's music.

The movie is directed by Julian Nicole-Kay, who employs a variety of camera angles and shots to capture the energy and excitement of Jethro Tull's performance. The camera frequently cuts between different band members, showing close-ups of their fingers on their instruments, as well as wider shots that reveal the vast audience and beautiful Montreux setting.

One of the most notable aspects of the film is how well the music holds up, despite being more than 30 years old at the time of the performance. The crowd's enthusiastic response is a testament to the enduring appeal of Jethro Tull's unique blend of folk, rock, and jazz influences.
