Critics Reviews

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
The plot's larcenous resolution is something of a cheat, tying things up dramatically if unethically.

Carefully crafted, lushly romantic.

Users Reviews

Exquisite study in obsessions throughout the life of (and linked to) a 400+ year old violin. May tax the patience of modern audiences, but for those without MTV-shortened attention spans, it will captivate for its entire running time.
