Brief Synopsis – Short film about the way a Holocaust survivor and young aspiring musician meet after he decides to donate his violin to her school.
My Take on it – In my quest to try and watch all of the films nominated for an Oscar this year, I found this film on Youtube thanks to my good friend Damien of Riley Central.
I had no idea what to expect with this film and was pleasantly surprised at how emotional a story like this could be.
It shows us that even at points in our lives where we think we have nothing else to learn, it is possible that a small action on our part can lead to things much greater.
We are told of the stories of these two extraordinary people who meet via a violin which it turns out helped both of them when they needed it the most.
This may be a short film (just 24 minutes long), but it really is emotional in it’s storytelling and I, for one plan to be rooting for it come Oscar Night (eventhough, I have so far only seen two of the films nominated in that category).
If you are interested in seeing this, I urge you to do so because it is such a well made film with an inspirational story that can help teach anyone the value of giving when you have no expectation of getting something back in return.
Bottom Line – Very inspirational film that shows how life can sometimes make connections between people who one would never expect to meet. The stories of both Joe and the girl are very emotional and this is a true story of hope even when one thinks there is nothing left to hope for. Very deserving of the Oscar nomination for Best Documentary Short and I hope this one wins. Highly Recommended!
