excellent NFB short
19 July 2001 | by kurtman-2See all my reviews

Touching story of a young boy who is inspired to play the violin by an aging master. This a great little piece of Canadiana film that I first saw as a kid in school. If you can find it at a library it's well worth viewing, just don't look for it out on DVD anytime soon ;-)
