    I thought the pianist was a rip off of Shindler's List - a very good rip off however as it approached the holocaust from a different angle. I love any film where music is the dominating theme.

    I thought The Red Violin was a decent film and I also thought it's imperfections made it interesting. I'ts absolutly amazing when you realise the fortune teller was exactly right at the end! I don't want to give the plot away for those who havn't seen it, but I think the violin maker was right when he said "our son will be a great musician"! Really thought provoking!
    When all the paint has been dried, when all the stone has been carved, music shall remain, and we shall work with what remains.

    Rip off? It was based on the book by the pianist, Szpilman.

    Oh, really? Please put a disclaimer of some sort before mentioning anything about a story line of a film. I'm still reeling after shock when the plot of the Sixth Sense was revealed to me even before I saw the film, which happened a week later! It's been 5 years since that happened.

    Another thing I liked about The Red Violin was the original music. John Corigliano composed music inspired from the different periods shown in the Film and it sounds pretty authentic.
