THE RED VIOLIN * (Theatrical Release USA 1999)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

The Red Violin—classic entertainment—is intriguing and saturates itself with a decidedly European flavor throughout its story. Samuel L. Jackson plays a quite different role in this film and as usual gives it his best. His supporting cast helps move the story along in a flowing way that is well received. It is a well-done story.

Storyline

A violin travels the world through several centuries before finding its final resting place in America.

Yes. It serves as a good late teen/adult share and sits among some of the better films on the market. Well done by all involved.
