The Violin (2005, directed by Francisco Vargas, Mexico), 98 min.
Don Plutarco, his son Genaro and his grandson Lucio live a double life: on one hand they are musicians and humble farmers. On the other, they also support the campesino guerilla movement’s armed efforts against the oppressive government. Plutarco plays up his appearance as a harmless violin player and charms the captain of the army occupying his village, consequently developing a relationship in which arms and music play a tenuous game of cat-and-mouse.
