Vertigo / Emotion film

Synopsis:

Old Italian string instruments are known for their beautiful sound and astronomical prices. A violin named Estrelita, after the sudden death of its owner, sets off an avalanche of conflicts. The widow Dora, who devotedly served her husband's artistic creation for a long number of years, finds out after his death that he was unfaithful to her not only with music, but also with another woman – a younger and a more beautiful one. In the rush of emotion she gives the violin to a talented boy from a socially deprived family. The boy grows attached to the instrument, but soon Dora's son Julian appears, demanding the violin back, for he sees it as a material possession to which he has a hereditary claim. The battle for the violin begins. The conflict brings the main characters to extremes involving crime, violence and an unusual romance… In the end, dirty money and pure music are forced into a fragile, but realistic compromise.
