The Red Violin (Le violon rouge) Reviews

Page 1 of 4
David Keyes

Like the immaculate instrument it follows, "The Red Violin" is a piece of filmmaking fully refined by the hands of someone who believed in the material, and the effect it leaves us with is one of transcendence.

François Girard ... with co-writer Don McKellar and an able cast, has spun a yarn that crosses all manner of boundaries: geographic, artistic, and taste.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

The story lines, while having little direct connection to historical events, are obviously grounded in musical and artistic legend.

It is disconcerting to see {Jackson}...after watching his exceptional performances as crazy criminals in two Quentin Tarantino movies.

entertains with fanciful fable and contains beautiful virtuoso violin solos (by Joshua Bell) and location shooting, but offers little substance

Movie Gurus

Derided by some contrarian critics for being "safe", this is an ambitious and at times uneven epic that stretches several continents and centuries . . .

A spiritually rich and musically sublime drama about the soulful dimensions of beauty.

If the movie didn't pat itself on the back so often for being arty, than it might come off as an interesting, if flawed film.

Film Journal International

A good score can only do so much and, too often here, it is undercut by an overly sentimental story.

If you see it, it should be only for the wonderful solo violin of Joshua Bell.

Girard invests each episode of this production with dramatic credibility and emotional strength.

Like a blending of great symphony and great cinema, The Red Violin is a magnum opus of musical-visual composition.

Its individual pieces interlock smoothly as a whole.

Arthur Lazere

A sensual pleasure to hear, and to watch the film on screen... an intellectual pleasure to mull the complex themes afterwards. This is filmmaking of the highest order.

a composition in five movements. Although the primary theme (the violin) ties all the segments together, it is but a thin string.
