Based on true events. Violin strings and heartstrings.
10 April 2020 | by derek917See all my reviews

This film obviously isn't a big budget Hollywood blockbuster, but I was pleasantly surprised how much it held my attention. It's not up there with The Great Escape, but still a decent WWII movie. All sides suffer during a war and that certainly comes across.The 'instrument' referred to in the title is a violin, so this movie would appeal to anyone who plays one. The acting is okay and the script could have been better. A sincere attempt at showing life in a prisoner of war camp under Nazi rule. Worth a watch.
