A movie with viola da gamba, a lot of it: Tous les Matins du Monde. Again a French movie. Splendid soundtrack.

Also The Concert by Radu Mihaileanu. Lovely movie :)

I second the mention of The Red Violin. IMO, it's a great movie, following the journey of one specific violin through the centuries.

The new Robocop movie has a guy with a robotic hand playing the Concierto de Aranjuez in a hospital during his rehab. He struggles with it because his robotic tendencies go into overdrive and this causes him to not feel the music.

Try Robert Redford's almost cult like movie, 'The Milagro Beanfield War' based on one of the three of John Nichols' books from 'New Mexico Trilogy'.
Music for the Redford film is by Dave Grusin, featuring guitarist Angel Romero.

About 2:37 into the trailer you can hear the main guitar theme.

The pistolero theme is pretty cool too, some great chops by Angel, it's not in the trailer however.

Grusin should really circle back around to this and put together a New Mexico Fantasia or something for solo guitar; expand the themes, some bridge sections, some variations.
I'm thinking along the lines of what Giuliani did for Rossini themes.

Does anybody know Dave Grusin. Let's find him and start a mail in.

It's not directly about CG but VickyCristinaBarcelona has a lot of guitar playing throughout and has a really nice scene in the middle in which a guitarist plays "Granada" by Albeniz. I own the soundtrack and it's really nice.

That Paganini trailer was vulgar, to say the least ...
