Slow-moving romanticized story of classic violinist...
26 March 2001 | by dwpollarSee all my reviews

1st watched 4/22/2000 - 4 out of 10 (Dir-Bernard Knowles): Slow-moving romanticized story of classic violinist named Paganini. The movie seems to want to woo the women and share the man's story but doesn't do either very well.
