Chicken with Plums

Poulet aux prunes

France, Germany, 2011


Renown Iranian violinist Nasser Ali Khan is desperate: his long-lost love failed to recognise him in the street and his beloved Stradivarius is broken and cannot be replaced, so he takes to his bed and waits for death. There, he recounts the tale of his life, and why his violin meant so much to him.
