A man the world needed to meet
6 July 2017 | by MOscarbradleySee all my reviews

We are back in the Hermitage but unlike the swirling, continually moving camera of "Russian Ark", Andres Duque's camera hardly moves at all, for the subject now is not the art on display but the small, strange-looking old man who has entered the long hallway and is regaling us with a tale of how he braved the snow to get there. He is Oleg Karavaychuk, the great composer and pianist and it really is a pleasure to meet him.

Karavaychuk was almost 90 when this lovely documentary was made and he died shortly afterwards. He may have been a recognized musical genius in Russia and yet he was someone most Russians would not recognize on the street, (Mubi describes him as looking as if he had stepped out of a novel by Gogol). A great raconteur and a true eccentric he was, of course, the best guide to his own life and music and he makes for wonderful company. However, there is also a touch of the 'Grey Gardens' about Duque's film which might make it uncomfortable viewing for some; was it Oleg's genius or his eccentricity that hooked Duque? But then does it matter? Here is a man the world needed to meet and hopefully this film will receive the widest possible distribution, at least on the art-house circuit. I found it, and Oleg, really quite wonderful.
