  4. mpho3's rating of the film The Violin

    Powerful, powerful, powerful. Gorgeously shot. Tavira's performance is the very definition of "quiet dignity."

  6. msmichel's rating of the film The Violin

    Fantastic film that should be much better known than it is. Beautiful cinematography, sharp direction and a script that bears the weight of scrutiny. Tavira is brilliant as a travelling musician whose family helps with the smuggling of arms for the rebels against the oppresing soldiers. His stoic nobility shines through in contrast with the overfed captain who becomes his nemesis. "The music is over". !!! Wow.

  7. Rebeca Magnus's rating of the film The Violin

    Really great movie, it steps out from the latin american stereotype of filming and shows a very tragic but captivating story, emphasizing it with the black and white.

  8. ramosbarajas's rating of the film The Violin

    This is an example of a truly great film. It holds its weight against the great greats of the canon, like Citizen Kane or Rome, Open City. To begin, the cinematography is amazing. I have not often seen a film as beautifully photographed as this. The story is as socially relevant as all the Italian Neo-realist films. The performances are great. I see very few problems with this film.

  11. Lefteris Becerra's rating of the film The Violin

    por fin una película mexicana que no traiciona ni evade la realidad si la película es en blanco y negro, ¿por qué poner una foto a color?
