Recalling The Red Violin, this 2000 award-winning Italian drama is a multi-generational tale of music, fate, and passion. The film opens in pre-WWII Europe with Jeno, a young Jewish boy, cherishing his only reminders of his father — a rare violin and a canone inverso, a traditional composition written for two instruments. Years later while studying at a music conservatory, he befriends an aristocratic young man and finally discovers his family heritage. Suitable for 17 and up.
