CANADA, United Kingdom, Germany, Hungary | 113 minutes | 2019

Shot in London, Budapest and Montreal, this drama based on the eponymous novel by Norman Lebrecht unfolds like a detective story. Two boys, Martin and Dovidl, brought together on the eve of the Second World War, grow up in London. Then, right before his first public performance, violin prodigy Dovidl mysteriously vanishes. Decades later, Martin sets off to unravel the mystery of what happened. After The Red Violin and Boychoir, François Girard once again puts his first love — music — front and centre. Backed by a brilliant team that includes composer Howard Shore, the Quebec-born director delivers a poignant story of friendship set against the burning horrors of history and secrets that cannot stay hidden.
