Exceptional, 23 January 2005
Author: belisanda ( from Santa Susana, Portugal

An extraordinary documentary that follows up the great Igor Stravinsky himself in his later years, drawing from several archive sources. It also contextualizes his earlier years in Paris with the Ballets Russes and Diaghilev - arguably following up his masterpiece "Le Sacré du Printemps" as well as "Petroushkha" and "Firebird" (forgive the orthography...) - which we later see him revive both as a maestro/director and as he traces back his steps to the villa in Switzerland where he composed them. A long life and filled with contacts with many other major writers, painters, sculptors and fellow composers. If I am not mistaken he was a naturalized US citizen and his mortal remains repose at Venice, Italy. But I think Paris was his city and this documentary/film bears this out. Touching/ironic moments: his returns to Moscow and Berlin...
