Maestro

Synopsis

Maestro tells the story of a famous international concert violinist who no longer plays. Embittered and haunted by a guilty secret, he retires to a remote mountain village in Spain. He lives alone and is regarded by the villagers with a mixture of suspicion and disdain. The arrival on holiday of his housekeeper's beautiful daughter, Inma, upsets his quiet existence and re-awakens long buried emotions and old wounds.

In an electrifying final act, the theme of atonement and redemption is played out against the background of Easter Feria.

Beautifully photographed by Tom Ingle, the film was shot on location in Britain and Competa, Spain. The blazing Spanish sun, the towering beauty of the mountains, the apparent tranquillity of the little white villages of Spain, provide the backdrop and atmosphere for the cauldron of the characters' emotions.
