Beautiful, passionate, captivating!

I loved this movie even though it is not my normal style. It is a movie you will have to watch without interruption, not just because of the subtitles but also because the plot will jump around a bit. Mostly from a modern day auction, back to different times in history, and repeating the auction scene each time with a little more information. It is slow, but not boring!

A woman's servant tells her future, and it doesn't take too long for anyone to figure out the future is that of the beautiful violin the lady's husband has made for their child, rather than the lady herself. The violin shows up in different times in history, all the way back up to the future at the auction. Each stage in history has it's own story, each filled with beauty, passion, sadness, and love. This is a wonderful story, with rich audio and visual pleasures, completed with fine acting from the cast. Yes, the ending is easy to guess, but I don't feel that it took away from the magnificence of the movie at all.
