An Amazing Musical Feat Surrounding a Musician's Life
4 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

I have just finished viewing this film and will keep it to view again, since the music is superb. From the moment the film started the high standard of music was obvious right away, I was enchanted.

The movie opens with jazz music, a drum solo and a magnificent piece of saxophone playing. A child's life is affected right there! And the rest of the movie features amazing popular jazz melodies superbly arranged. Josh Koffman certainly knew what he was doing with regards to the music in this film.

I do not wish to write a spoiler or tell the story, but commend the mix of classical & jazz music, the beautiful saxophone and other instruments playing were the best I have ever heard in a Canadian production. Some visual scenes were also quite artistically presented. John walking in the school corridors in pace with music, the angle his little apartment is shot showing only the little spaces used when he comes home exhausted and other interesting angles. I am sure that other people will contribute more observations, but since I saw that no reviews were written yet, I am jumping in to give this effort its due credit.

I raise my hat to all the wonderful musicians who worked on this movie, and hope that many people will have a chance to appreciate this homage to a life of a musician.
