huge inspirations for me!
1 April 2018 | by cecelegySee all my reviews

It seemed to me that the film did not want to show more of the backstage world and did not want to force any kind of narrative if such narrative does not come by on its own. The images and captured moments are serious, funny and heartwarming, and they are shown in just the right rhythm. On some level, this movie is also a contemporary reflection on classical musicals: we have glimpses of layers that are not seen in everyday life and, as this is a documentary film, real-life artists are shown. Of course, this is fun mostly for the French audience, but I did not mind it either. I really liked how the classic, long-gone, abstract and somewhat aristocratic opera world was placed into the present and there was an ongoing interaction with real-life events (Charlie Hebdo, Bataclan, strikes, the president's visit etc.). I would have gladly watched more of it if the film had been longer. Such laid-back professionalism and being committed to such high standards are always huge inspirations for me!
