Costanza is drinking a beer in a Prague pub, a summer night in 1968, while a violinist enters and starts playing a canone inverso for her. It is not a coincidence: that music and that violin have a story behind, which could concern her. Canone inverso becomes a metaphor that links present and past.
This film is about the love story between Jeno Varga and music, between Jeno and Sophie. It is also about the friendship with David on the background of WWII and the Prague spring 25 years later.
A must-see not only for movie-goers but also for classical music lovers: a fascinating and poignant story told through a masterpiece soundtrack by Ennio Morricone.
