Eigenmodes in the Red Violin

YouTube video

The movie The red violin is remarkable for many reasons: it is a great story, nicely told, and has good violin solo parts. The story is about a mysterious red violin. It is a bit of a detective story as more and more about the red violin’s history emerges. Who will get it in the end? The monks in the Austrian alps, the Gypsy violinist girl, the representative of the Pope Foundation, the professional violinist Mr. Ruselsky, the Chinese investor who listened to the instrument, then possessed by Xiang Pei in Shanghai as a kid when it had been forbidden to own a violin or the investigator played by Samuel Jackson who tracks the story for the auction house?
