A little girl wants to play the violin as good as her idol can, but unfortunately she's really bad at it. Though she will find out doing something that you're not so good at can be fun anyway.
Violinplay is my 2nd year student film, made at the Utrecht School of the Arts in the Netherlands.
The music you hear being played so badly is Bach's Minuet in G Major. I played both the piano and the violin (I'm very good at playing the violin very bad) myself.
Oh and that guy on the poster is André Rieu, a famous Dutch violin player who makes great facial expressions while playing.
