The Red Violin
Drama • R • 1998 • 2 hr 11 min
Very interesting seeing all the lifetimes connected by that violin.
A good story about the strange travel of a violin
Emotionally evocative piece detailing the history and legacy of a very interesting instrument. I loved this movie!
Cross stories moves are often difficult to make sense and keep the audience attention all the way though, this one is a winner
this is a classic of american cinema. weaves multiple vignettes into one cohesive structure that will definitely grab your attention
One of those movies to remember forever😀
One of the few movies that I watched over ten times
Something missing in movie, like makes you think " it could be better ", but overall nice directed and acted.
Terribly underrated. It was never boring and managed to entertain me and keep me on my toes
I had to watch it for my humanities class, hardly have any recollection of it. Found it dull and pretentious

At 18, he emigrates and peels potatoes in the U.S. Air Force. He leaves for California and college, then enlistment in the Navy to learn to fly. A quiet man of sorrows tells his story: war, capture, harrowing conditions, escape, and miraculous rescue. Where did he find the strength; how does he now live with his memories?
