Product Description:

Stephane (Daniel Auteuil) and Maxime (Andre Dussollier) are partners in a respectable violin making and repair business. One day a beautiful violinist named Camille (Gallic beauty Emmanuelle Beart) enters their shoppe and their lives, immediately striking up an affair with the outgoing Maxime. But Camille finds herself unexpectedly drawn to the enigmatic Stephane, an extremely withdrawn individual incapable of expressing emotion yet completely comfortable with his own passionless solitude. Convinced she can break through Stephane's cold exterior, Camille travels further and further into the realms of obsession until her unrequited love reaches its inevitable and dangerous conclusion.

Description by KOCH Entertainment Distribution:

Daniel Auteuil (Manon of the Spring) stars as Stephane, the curiously diffident co-owner of an exclusive violin brokerage and repair shop. A brilliant technician, Stephane can make any instrument live up to its promise, yet he himself is emotionally remote and disconnected from passionate experience. His partner, Maxime (André Dussollier), lacks Stephane's gifts but is rich in personality and desire. When Maxime's new lover, a violinist named Camille (Emmanuelle Béart), is drawn to Stephane's still waters, he is briefly moved, thus destroying the fragile, symbiotic relationship between all three individuals.

Plot Synopsis:

Stephane and Maxime share a successful violin-repairing business and a comfortable friendship. Their relationship is upset when the married Maxime falls in love with a beautiful young violinist, Camille, who is herself more intrigued by the withdrawn Stephane.
