Event Details

Award-winning actors Tim Roth and Clive Owen star in this exceptionally acted, emotional detective story spread over two continents and a half-century.

Directed by François Girard (The Red Violin, Hochelaga, Land of Souls), this sweeping historical drama follows Martin (Roth), a man searching for his childhood best friend, Dovidl Rapoport (Owen) – a Polish violin prodigy orphaned in the Holocaust who vanished decades before on the evening of his much-anticipated first public concert. When Dovidl doesn’t perform, Martin is left to tell the packed audience that the performance will not go on. Years later, while serving as a judge in a musical competition, Martin discovers a young student playing in Dovidl’s unique style. The triggering encounter sends him on a transcontinental search that reveals elements of his dear friend’s tormented life – an existence Martin could not have fathomed at the time.
