The Red Violin

The Red Violin. A little favorite of mine. The film chronicles the journey of a mysteriously red stained violin throughout its history, sharing the stories of all who fell under its spell. This scene is my favorite. Of course, I love the use of music as a metaphor for sex- as a musician and worshipper of music, I can vouch for that. I also love the fact that the violinist, Frederick Pope, is clearly in love with his instrument. The violin, as we find out later, is stained red with blood- the blood of a woman who was the wife of a violin maker. I mean, really, does it get any better than that?
