Caruso or Björling? Most people seem to think that Jussi Björling is the greatest tenor during the 1900s. He's one of few performers of classical music, who touches almost everyone. And you can certainly tell after just one or two seconds that it's his voice you're listening to.
This documentary is a rather brief telling about his artist life, starting with the kid brother trio run by his father. Then, we are told about Björling's career, but most of the movie clips have been seen before, although his children have many things to tell. Perhaps the film makers should have made the whole thing more fictionalized and the movie never goes deeply into Björling's artistry.
For those who don't know much about him, this can be a suitable introduction. But others want more.
