Actually it came out last year, but it has only just been released in the U.S. via Netflix. A Noble Intention (original title Publieke Werken) The violin making is fairly incidental to the plot but there are some nice shots of the workshop and the story is kicked off, in part, by the consignment and sale of an instrument. It’s an interesting story but I can’t say it’s a particularly good movie. I just ordered the book that it’s based on in the hopes that it’s better. Anyway, just thought folks might be interested.

Under the Maestro's Hand (A Violin Erotica Short Story) (Kindle Locations 28-30). The second one is called Kitchen Maid: It was badly scarred, dented, dark brown and scuffed. A corner was chipped, and a crack ran from the shoulder to the top of the right f-hole. Salty grey tear marks streaked over the belly. The wood was warm to the touch, not shiny, but matte, like well-worn leather. She turned it over. Grime, the color of coffee grounds, covered the back, partially obscuring the pinwheels of birdseye maple. Lady Amati. Under the Maestro's Hand (A Violin Erotica Short Story) (Kindle Locations 55-58). --- If you're interested in the ebook it's available at Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, Sony ebookstore. Warning: the writing is risque and for ages 18+ I'm also writing regular novels under my penname Rachelle Ayala and you can find me at http://www.rachelleayala.com --- Let me know what you think about my short story, or if it's too embarrassing, at least let me know what you thought about the violin parts.
