As a musician of 50 years standing and an international teaching and performing career, I can honestly say, this movie was a "stunner". Professor Bernstein embodies all of those qualities of a teacher, a performer and a wise professor of life and culture that we all emulate and have tried in our careers to articulate. He is more than a "guru" but an icon of performance practice and pedagogy that will stand the test of time in this important and beautiful film.
Ethan Hawke should be commended and lauded for bringing this important man and his wisdom to light in this profound way.

Fantastic film and the best music film I have ever seen.
