Goofs

King of France Carl IX (1550-1574) died before Nicolo Amati's (1596-1684) birth. So he couldn't order the violins from Amati. Most probably it was Ludovic XIV. See more »

detective and historical drama in one
10 January 2004 | by (Riga, Latvia) – See all my reviews

Screenplay is by Vainer brothers, who often used "two lined" way of writing. Action shifts from 20 to 16 century, from the work of an ordinary Soviet detective who is looking for the stolen Stradivari violin, to the time when the violin was made. Stradivari and detective is played by the same actor, which adds a bit of mysticism. To find the violin detective takes a psychological approach. Film doesn`t have car chases, shootouts and other "Hollywood stuff". It is powerful emotionally, we are watching the torments of Stradivari who`s sons are abandoning his one after another and following the detective uncover peoples life stories along the way, while he`s searching for the thief and the violin. Note- amazing music in the film and in the end is played by a famous Soviet violinist on a real (!) Stradivari violin.
