abduct The red violin-4 or more stories
Advertisement
Hey, has anyone seen this movie?
Makes me wonder how many lifetimes weave-and how big the quilt is when finished...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhqgV4flGdE

"The film tells the story of a perfect violin known as "the Red Violin" for its rich red colour. At the film's beginning, the violin is being auctioned in Canada. As the bidding starts, the violin's history is revealed, showing that the violin has been in existence for over 300 years, having been made in 1681.
Its history is told in five stories set in different locations around the world—Cremona, Vienna, Oxford, Shanghai, and Montreal. These stories are told in chronological order except for the Cremona and Montreal stories, which are intersected into the others with each change of location and as the tarot reading and the auction develop. The 1997 auction is used as a framing device for the first four stories in the film. After the fourth story, we see the complicated resolution to the auction sequence with no further cutaways to the other four stories.
To its owners, the violin causes anger, betrayal, love, and sacrifice. In each setting the dialogue is spoken in the appropriate language. Also, a variation of the movie's signature violin solo by composer John Corigliano is played at least once in the period it is played, with the exception of Cremona, where the solo is being hummed by Anna herself. Throughout the movie, the solos are played by noted violinist Joshua Bell.
The movie starts with Charles Morritz (Jackson) arriving at Duval's auction house to witness the sale of the Red Violin. Throughout the movie, we see the various parties representing the different eras as seen in the film vying for the Red Violin. When the scene does finally shift to Montreal, we see a flashback of the events leading up to the auction."

I saw it many years ago... good flick.

It made me wonder about so many other 'objects' and their hidden history.

Like the story of the Hope Diamond. Horrible luck to all who owned it. Loved The Red Violin movie as well.

Why should the sky be the limit, when there are foot prints on the moon.

Do you think the frequency of ones essence is transferred into an object? I've picked up stones and rocks and have felt lifetimes...

I haven't had a chance to see the movie yet, although it does sound like it's right up my alley, so to speak. This is an interesting concept, which I have heard before, more or less...

Speaking of objects... in regard to a 'spear,' say, that I have heard would be meaningless, as an object... let's say that the spearhead (if not iron) were actually stone, like the old arrowheads and spear points used to be? They were, you know... Eldritch's Indian history got me to thinking about that... thanks Richard. ;) Anyway, what if the energy of the 'Christ'ed one were transferred from his body, at that moment, to the stone of the spear point? Do you suppose that that would make it a 'talisman of power?'

It might work with iron equally, but the notion of stone appeals to me, on the level that you propose...

...what is this which is written in the Tanakh, `'The very rock which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone’?

The Light shineth in Darkness, and the Darkness comprehendeth it not...

interesting that you mentioned the red shoes-similar and yet Hiding
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXTRe9ttMXw

"Oh she move like the Diva do
I said "I'd love to dance like you."
She said "just take off my red shoes
Put them on and your dream'll come true
With no words, with no song
You can dance the dream with your body on
And this curve, is your smile
And this cross, is your heart
And this line, is your path

Oh it's gonna be the way you always thought it would be
But it's gonna be no illusion
Oh it's gonna be the way you always dreamt about it
But it's gonna be really happening to ya
Really happening to ya
Really happening to ya"

Oh the minute I put them on
I knew I had done something wrong
All her gifts for the dance had gone
It's the red shoes, they can't stop dancing, dancing
And this curve, is your smile
And this cross, is your heart
And this line, is your path

"Oh it's gonna be the way you always thought it would be
But it's gonna be no illusion
Oh it's gonna be the way you always dreamt about it
But it's gonna be really happening to ya"

She gotta dance, she gotta dance
And she can't stop 'till them shoes come off
These shoes do, a kind of voodoo
They're gonna make her dance 'till her legs fall off

Feel your hair come tumbling down
Feel your feet start kissing the ground
Feel your arms are opening out
And see your eyes are lifted to God
With no words, with no song
I'm gonna dance the dream
And make the dream come true
I'm gonna dance the dream
And make the dream come true

She gotta dance, she gotta dance
And she can't stop 'till them shoes come off
These shoes do, a kind of voodoo
They're gonna make her dance 'till her legs fall off
Call a doctor, call a priest
They're gonna whip her up like a helicopter

Really happening to ya
Really happening to ya

You gotta dance...."

Wish all Hollywood movies were as thought-provoking and original as this one, and not just aimless star vehicles. Loved The Artist this year, too. But The Red Violin was like a banquet.

RE: The red violin-4 or more stories
chance, The Red Violin had five stars on my Netflix account when I checked it out. I used to play a little guitar and piano, nothing much at all. the stringed instruments are my fav, esp. the violin.

It's been ordered.....

I think metal as well as stones hold essence. It's wild when you think about what actually makes up stone-and metal for that matter...
Stone being compressed minerals (feldspar)-ash-clay-shells-magma (fire rocks) indigenous rock-talc- the list is endless...

I read an article recently---
2 new elements added to the periodic table. I believe they are numbered 114 and 116. Their use must not have been necessary until now-in this point in time, although they have always existed.

Most definitely goldenfleeced, I do believe the rock or arrowhead (stone or metal) would have become a talisman-and, I wonder where that spear is at this moment in time...
