User Reviews

Definitely a Russian film with excellent understanding of the situation and good actors role playing
2 August 2006 | by MarquosSee all my reviews

This is a definitely Russian film as they did between 1970-1990. You can feel something beautiful when listening to the lyrics of the main theme and seeing the film. If somebody in the west would have done it, he would have done more story-telling art.

Even though you see how Paganini kind of a destroyed his own life, you would still have the impression that you understand the person and you see the higher motives behind his work. You get the glimpse of some higher picture of his life and the meaning of any life - to go and do what you love no matter how's the life. So, the film shows some passion and makes you feel there's much beauty in life. As many Russian films do. With excellent understanding of the situation and actors role playing.
