This movie is structurally very similar to The Yellow Rolls Royce (1964). In each case the plot follows the picaresque adventures of a man-made object around which the human characters interact. The adventures are unrelated to each other and take place sequentially in different times and geographies. See more »

I had never heard of this movie until I heard about it on the radio. I listen to classical music, and the staion was praising Joshua Bell (an ohio native) on his perfomance of the music. I was curious and saw it when it came on video. not only did i fall in love with the movie itself, but also the music. it was soothing, passionate, and brutal all at the same time. Many people I have talked to have said that Le Violon Rouge was just some crappy indie movie. However, the music is as beautiful as the plot. The storyline and the way it was presented in the form of different people who wanted the violin for different reasons was not so much genius, but different and fitting.
