Tonica Dominante Details


They say that music is the food of love, but one woodwind player is having a hard time getting the recipe right in this romantic drama. A hapless clarinet player (Fernando Alves Pinto) in a chamber ensemble is head over heels in love with the beautiful woman (Vera Zimmermann) who is first chair violinist in his group. He has a hard time gaining her attention, however, and when he volunteers to help as a page turner in her duet recital with a veteran pianist (Vera Holtz), he manages to spoil the job and make a mess of the performance. Will his heartfelt performance of a Bach piece be enough to win her heart and earn her forgiveness? Tonica Dominante was the first feature from writer and director Lina Chamie. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
