Highly Strung

Australian documentarian Scott Hicks (Shine, Glass: A Portrait of Philip in 12 Parts) delves into the world of classical music - the musicians devoted to it, as well as those collecting rare, highly sought after musical instruments.

"Hicks continues his exploration of music-themed films with Highly Strung: A journey into a rarefied world of elusive tones evoked by horsehair on catgut; of investors tempted to spend millions on unique instruments; and a quartet of virtuosi caught up in a duel of tension and harmony." (Adelaide Film Festival)

While highbrow critics and pundits of the Wiseman school may fume at the docu’s loose structure and arguably loaded angle, this is juicy entertainment for a general audience and should hit the right chord with any family-friendly or educational channel.

The Shine director unpicks the mystery of the string music world but fails to follow up some of his own interesting lines in this messy documentary.
