Oh, yes: I loved it!
15 December 2016 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

First of all: sorry for my English. Please correct me to arrive where I want to take you to. A film is always a challenge: it defies the sensitivity of those who watch it. I accepted the challenge. And I loved it. Probably most of the people could finds it too slow, or too pretentious. Is is not. We live, in general, surrounded by action, action and more action. This one moves action within the viewers and then, while the film progresses, suspense begins to grow and suddenly you are in the middle of a whirlwind and, finally, "The violin player" gives you two endings. Alfer that… I saw it again. I asked who played the violin, and the Production gently told me that he was the Musical Director. Well, I think he is an actor, too. It is really extraordinary. If I could write in Spanish, I probably would be able to express myself about the quality of the Actors, the Photographer, the Writers and the Director. Thank you so very much... all of you!
