Wonderful - Refreshing
19 June 2003 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

This is what modern documentary filmmaking is meant to be. Neither relying on talking-head interviews nor re-enactment, "September Songs" attempts to convey the great talent, contribution, and indeed the trials of Kurt Weil's journey from pre-WWII Germany to his eminent destination, the U.S.

The performances by Nick Cave, Elvis Costello, and PJ Harvey are wonderful and inflect a properly dark, dramatic tone which parallels the hard and often persecuted life of the composer.

Buy the soundtrack - see the film.
