From Character to Crescendo,
This review is from: Together With You [DVD]  (DVD)
Together is the story of a young violinist, Xiaochun, whose poor father uses his savings to to take Xiaochun to Beijing to find a suitable violin tutor, which they soon succeed in doing.
For a long time the film seems almost entirely character-driven rather than plot-driven, and the characters are believable and interesting enough for this to have been sustained throughout the film. However, in a sense, the story really starts to get underway once Xiaochun switches to a violin professor of a very different character from the first, and secrets of Xiaochun's past are revealed...
The story builds up to end in a perhaps unexpected crescendo of emotion, which is almost guaranteed to bring a tear to your eye.
