The Red Violin is a 1998 Canadian drama film directed by François Girard. It spans four centuries and five countries as it tells the story of a mysterious violin and its many owners. The film was an international co-production among companies in Canada, Italy, and the United Kingdom.
The film frames the history of the "Red Violin" around a Canadian auction in 1997, where the violin is at the center of multiple bids by interested parties, and a tarot card reading in 1681, where a violinmaker's wife has her future read for herself and her unborn child (and, by extension, that of the violin).
Starring: Samuel L. Jackson, Colm Feore, Monique Mercure, Don McKellar, Sylvia Chang, Jason Flemyng, Greta Scacchi & Carlo Cecchi
