Touching, sensitive, depth documentary about Schostakovich's troubled life under the communist dictatorship.

The movie alternates three kinds of styles: today's events (featuring interviews and scenes showing the movie director alter-ego with his collaborators), old recorded documents (mainly in black&white) dating the soviet epoch, and wonderful, dramatic reconstructions of Shostakovich's life events played by puppets (it may seems desecrating but these scenes are extremely intense in their tragical nature). Puppet scenes are just fine art, from their expressions to stage design and photography. Everything is suspended, tense, dark, like Shostakovich's music.

A delicious documentary blending historical accuracy and narration with delicate artistic taste and equilibrium.
