Stephane (Daniel Auteuil) is a violin maker - a genius at repairing damaged violins. He works with a friend, Maxime (Andre Dussollier), the front man for their business.

Maxime falls for a beautiful young violinist called Camille (Emmanuelle Beart). Et voila: a ready made love triangle. But Stephane is a recluse. He understands more about his craft than about relationships, and does not seem willing or able to reciprocate Camille's interest in him.

A reminder that love stories are not always as superficial as the ones you tend to find in Hollywood.

Auteuil's performance as Stephane is outstanding. Despite his coldness he is a sympathetic figure, but a very sad one, unable to engage with the world. At the end of the film he finally recognizes his plight.

An extremely sad film but very atmospheric and beautifully realised.

Don't expect too many shoot outs and car chases.
