Forgotten Movies: THE RED VIOLIN
A violin is made by a great violin maker in the 1500s and this movie documents the people whose hand it falls into through current day. I can think of three other similar movies: THE YELLOW ROLLS ROYCE, THE EARRINGS OF MADAME DE and CHANGING HANDS.
Are there any others?
This was a pretty good movie although certain parts of it entertained more than others. The story of the original owner and his wife was poignant but its days in Communist China were fairly generic. But all in all a good film. And lots of nice music. Worth your time.
