I' am the violin

2005 - 54 min.

Violinist Ida Haendel once belonged to the world elite of violin playing. But that time has passed, and the fur coats are starting to fall apart.

Nevertheless, she will never stop playing. She still considers herself one of the best – and perhaps she is. She denies that age has any influence on her playing.

I Am The Violin is a touching portrait of a musical genius, manoeuvring between self-mockery and self-deceit.

A film full of melancholy, wonderful music and sometimes one note a bit out of tune.
