Shine meets Twenty Bucks (a wonderful sleeper you should immediately run out and rent, but I digress). The Red Violin traces the history of a particular musical instrument from its birth to present time, highlighting certain persons and events that its path crosses. In an anthology type movie such as this, itís natural for some segments to outshine others. The only weakness of the movie is that the later segments are not as strong as the earlier ones, and there are some minor problems with pacing. But thereís plenty to recommend: Great acting, a good story, and a non-linear storytelling format, which I absolutely love when itís done right. Itís done right here, and when you throw Samuel L. Jackson in a non-linear story, who wouldnít think of a Tarantino movie (especially when Jackson begins barking orders). A very, very good film!

If that violin could talk. but sadly, he can't. "The Red Violin," is a story of world history as see though the eyes of a violin. The story of the violin can be traced starting in the late 18th Century and marches though time to the China Revolution to the modern day. "The Red Violin" is a must see for those who admire both history and classical music.
