must buy for the desert island
17 October 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I am very upset to have lived so many years, and paying attention to music, yet never have until now heard about the story of André Mathieu.

Apart from that shock, what surprised me was how much I enjoyed the craft of filmmaking in this work, apart from the compelling nature of the story itself.

So much appreciation for all the behind the scenes craftspeople on this precious project.

The audience for this film is multi-levels and I barely know where to begin.

For example, it is an inspiration to any young person to take a craft and work at it with devotion.

For society in general, it inspires a commentary as to where we apply resources: to life or to destruction?

In the esoteric world of music composition, the Greek gods of Neptune and Ouranos are placed before us with their arguments.

Rachmaninov wept when he heard this young boy play. Both were steeped, as it were, in Neptunian worldview.

But the Uranians held sway in this era. Combine this with a monetary system and basic survival becomes a paramount issue. What a tragedy for our human species, and so needlessly.

With the internet as it is going these days, the late Mr. Mathieu has the risk of going viral. I wish he would be here to enjoy it.

Buy the DVD !!
