15-year old boy receives violin that allows him to look into the future
11 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

15-year old Oliver has to deal with the death of his mother and the absence of his father. He lives with his weird grandma, who holds séances and opposes modern technology. He had promised his mom that he would continue to play the violin, but does not really like it. One day, a stranger gives him a violin that was once owned by Paganini. When he plays this magical instrument, it allows him to look into the future and influence it. However, while the stranger had hoped Oliver would use the violin's powers for the greater good of society, Oliver uses it mainly for his own personal gain and soon realizes that every time he looks into the future, an unfortunate or even dangerous side effect occurs... I absolutely loved this mini-series! Not only does it deal with the meaning of fate and hope, but it has its share of action and mystery. It's great and valuable entertainment without unnecessary violence, accompanied by a good soundtrack - Joseph Gröbmayr was chosen to play Oliver because of his musical talent and actually played the violin in the series!
