Synopsis

Biographical drama based on the life of Italian composer and violinist Niccolo Paganini, portrayed by world-renowned violinist David Garrett. Critically-acclaimed violin virtuoso Paganini has travelled the world earning a name for himself as a phenomenal musician but has also built up a less-than-favourable reputation as a serial womaniser and worshipper of the devil. While his manager Urbani (Jared Harris) does everything he can to play-down his client's shenanigans, English publicist John Watson (Christian McKay) invests all he has to bring the musician to London. While staying in Watson's home, Paganini falls for his daughter Charlotte (Andrea Deck) and the two begin a passionate affair, much to the dismay of her father.
