To avoid the discordant noises that trouble his sensitive ears, Juanito escapes to an island to play violin. At a marketplace, he meets an old man with a beautiful violin and becomes his pupil. When the old man dies, Junaito steals the instrument each night and takes it to the island to play. The sound of the music in the night frightens the villagers until during the Day of the Dead fiesta they take up arms and go in search of the source of the ghostly music.

Dividing Bar

Beautiful fable that could easily have been corny but manages not to be. As with Henri Decaë's cinematography for the wonderful Sundays and Cybèle, there's a lot of visual inventiveness, with things seen from different angles, in reflection and so on. The plot is based on Henryk Sienkiewicz's story Yanko the Musician. The dialogue, of which there's very little, is mostly in Náhuatl.
