Dutch pre-teen Finn is lovingly raised by his father, a grim lonely Carpenter, ever since his mother died on Christmas Eve giving birth to him. One thing father forbids Finn bluntly is learning to play an instrument, having given up his own musical ambitions when widowed. But Finn dreams of becoming a violinist and gets the opportunity to learn from a gifted old men, Luuk, who later turns out to be his estranged grandfather. It's truth time for all to face their past and future. Written by KGF Vissers

This is one of the best films I've ever watched
18 September 2016 | by youchengyuyangSee all my reviews

I came across the film on the plane of a Chinese airline. I was bored on the plane, but the film made the 14-hour trip so much better. It's the best family movie I've ever seen in my life, and I truly would like to recommend it to everyone. Even though I don't speak Dutch and minimum German, I understood the film almost perfectly and I was truly captured by the wonderful story and the most beautiful music. I don't know why this film isn't more famous. It deserves all the credit and views since the young actor and director and everyone else all did a great job. Still, I love writing, and I sincerely wish that after some time, when I'm done with my work so far right now, I can novelize the film.
