already a piece of art history by itself
28 September 2009 | by (Herzlya, Israel) – See all my reviews

The documentary made in 1976 by the Canadian TV is already a piece of art history by itself, a precious documentary having caught on screen Marc Chagall at almost 90 years, yet looking in full power and at the pick of his wit, remembering and commenting of key aspects of his life and art. He is helped by his second wife Vava who translates from French to English for the interview, and some of the inexactitudes and short cuts she is taking are also not only amusing but documentary significant. Almost seven decades of the history and history of art of the20th century are reviewed by one of its greatest artist. Chagall remembers events and people, he reflects on the role that his family and his Jewish background played in his art, but overall he talks to us about his love for life and people and the way he tried and wonderfully succeeded to turn it into art. The commentary is sometimes too apologetic, but after all the name of the film is 'Homage to Chagall'. The filming of the paintings is quite good quality taking into account that the film was made before the era of the digital capture. Overall the documentary will stay for many years as the best or one of the best made about the painter, and the inclusion of the interview is priceless.
