Francois Girard and Don McKellar’s The Red Violin tells the tale of a very special instrument — a perfectly crafted 17th-century violin finished with a mysterious red glaze. The final masterpiece of a virtuoso craftsman, the violin sits in a Montreal auction house waiting to be sold. As the auction proceeds, the violin’s history is revealed through four interconnected tales spanning 300 years.
