18 September 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

it is far to be the right word. because the story itself remains speechless. Joe. miss Kokoe. and Brianna. a violin. like bridge between generations. like testimony. and legacy. it is not easy to write about this film who is a box with unique stories. because the story of Joe is, in fact, the story of an entire century. the happiness, the Shoah, the desire to change a life, the survive, the opportunity for a talented and sensitive young violinist. and this does this film a must see. only see it. for discover the world. in the right light.
