The Music Man

The overall plot of the film is about a cello player who falls in love, and we watch his heartbreak and how he begins losing his sanity through music. We see how as he experiences different emotions, the colors of the film change as he plays throughout the film. The piece that was played was cellist Ryan Rose and pianist Claire Zhao, and they played Sicilienne,” by M.T. Von Paradis. The purpose of the song is to carry the story along and pull all the shots together since it’s the cello player’s song.
