Movies featuring Classical guitar (or any instrument)

Post by Sobers » Sat Aug 02, 2014 7:48 pm

Hello....
I am interested to know about feature films (not documentaries) having Classical guitar or Flamenco guitar as a subject. Can anyone share them?
I have seen The Pianist also The piano teacher having Piano as a subject but can't remember Classical guitar in a film. Also I've seen Music and Lyrics, Ray, Music of the heart and many more but still love to hear from you....

PS: I have seen Gitano and all films by Carlos Saura (featuring Flamenco and Spanish music)

"Zorro" with Antonio Banderas. Wasn't the subject, but he played and helped a young boy.

There's a Paraguayan film called "Mangoré" that hasn't been released yet.

Deadfall has a classical guitar performance happening at the same time as a robbery if my memory is correct!

I don't remember Antonio playing guitar in Zorro.... I think you got confused with a scene from Desperado
btw I've seen the trilogy

You people may laugh about it but I think years ago I saw someone playing CG in Friday the 13th part 1 (possible err: if my memory is not correct) :)

Thanks for the Mangoré link can't wait to watch the movie.......... feeling excited

I wonder if anyone knows how we would see Mangoré when it is released. Despite all the advances in international communication with the internet, it often isn't easy to see movies from other countries ( other English-speaking countries don't seem to count as foreign) in the U.S. A few famous European directors get shown here in art cinemas but little or nothing seems to come from South America.

Not sure exactly what you are looking for but if you haven't seen The Red Violin - it is worth watching

Again breaking the rules, but Kramer V Kramer has the most wonderful arrangement of the Vivaldi Mandolin concerto in C arranged for CG and Mandolin. Makes me want to take up the mandolin but CG is enough of a challenge for me.

You said other instruments so The Soloist. Cello.

And I enjoyed August Rush with Robin Williams and Freddie Highmore.

I wanted to see a film with a retired quintet as a theme but didn't and can't find its name now.

"Performance", aka "A Late Quartet" featured a whole string quartet. If you haven't seen it then do yourselves a favour and try to catch it. It is well worth while.
